Brugen af den trefoldige mimesis: Nye tilgange, Gamle realiteter

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftsartikelForskningpeer review


This article aims to illustrate how mimetic interpretation methodology
in humanities research can be viewed as a creative continuous
process of interpretation. The article offers a deepened and philosophically
anchored understanding of processes that go on in many
interpretative and reflective research processes, by shedding light
on crucial dimensions of interpretation. The research question addressed
is how the mimetic processes of interpretation can be used
for generating novel and useful knowledge.
By revealing the creative element in mimetic interpretations exemplified
by interpretation of empirical data, the article sheds new
light on the processes of generating novel and useful knowledge. It
is argued that a Ricoeurian-inspired mimetic hermeneutics reflective
process of interpretation is not only about textual interpretations
carried out by the researchers, but also about readers’ or listeners’
interpretations. It is concluded that a Ricoeurian-inspired
interpretative mimetic process is a process of creativity, adding new
or extended knowledge to the readers of the text
