The Relation of Text and the Other in Bakhtin's Thought
Hossein Azimi * , Masoud Olia
Abstract:   (11836 Views)
The question of otherness is one of Bakhtin’s main concerns in his work, but the distinguished feature of his contribution to this subject is the inquiry into textual appearane of the Other. In this article, whilst the authors try to reassert Bakhtin’s philosophical view on the Other and his relation to self in the world, various dimensions of the appearance of the Other in texts are investigated. The main statement of the article is that while Bakhtin considers some texts to be dialogical and others to be monological, drawing on all his ideas on the subject, he believes that there exists a certain degree of conflict between dialogue and monologue within every text. In other words, neither the dialogical texts are devoid of any monological features, nor the monological texts are deprived of any dialogical features. Therefore, the domination of the dialogical or monological features over other extreme in the texts, determines a text to be generally dialogical or monological, and the absolute appearance of monological or dialogical features in a single text is proved to be of no credit.
