Discipline and Punish in the Humanities: A Philosophically Indisciplined Manifesto

Doru POP


Advancing the notion of a methodless method, the author proposes an alternative to the quest for methods and methodologies, as an indisciplined perspective and approach, one that is impertinent, insolent and ironic. Using Paul Feyerabend’s prosed anarchistic method and overviewing the philosophical roots in the thinking of Socrates, Nietzsche and Marx, the suggestion made here is that humanities research must be liberated from its disciplinary tendencies and open toward  indisciplinarity.

Keywords: research methods, philosophy of science, anarchic method, indiscplinarity
