Abstract


Knowing through Minutia. Elements of Gnoseology in Kierkegaard, Benjamin and Mcluhan. This paper aims at investigating the textual relations that link the thoughts of Benjamin (On the Concept of Irony), Mcluhan (Understanding media) e Benjamin (The Origin of German Tragic Drama) in a common reflection on the modes of knowledge. The elements of gnoseology which arise from this reflection have a great significance in media and communication studies. Thereupon, the paper builds-up a constellation of terms complementary each other (observer, image, mythical, dream, discontinuity, consciousness, memory, medium, writing), a plot of motifs aimed at showing in detail the strengthen of a form of knowledge based on time and representation.
