Words, Bywords and Apparent Truths: Danger of Anachronisms and How to Combat Them
The problem of anachronisms is very well known, yet not seldom perpetuated, in the scholarly circles. Yet, what influence do they exercise on our every day living and do they solely represent the errors of academics?
In this podcast we address the pressing issue of conflating meanings of the words that give birth to the worst form of lie – apparent truth.
In the process we cover subject of the use of anachronisms in the approach to ancient and Medieval literary sources, pre-subjective and pre-reflective nature of intellect and anachronistic use of this word that reduces the original meaning of the word into nothing, non existence of some modern notions in the previous epochs that are read back into them by anachronisms, the evolutionary metaphysics and traditional notion of man, etc.
