Histories
of
Meaning


Winter 1999


In the pages linked within this site I trace a recent
history
of a
Classical
re-education
, particularly my experience with online references and
research resources. Either ancillary to this project or central to it (depending
upon the navigational choices the visitor to this site makes and/or the
agenda guiding that navigation) I have created metaindices of the most
important resources,
organizing them into categories which I call paidia . In choosing
this term, I am playing on the Greek word’s „ordinary meaning“ (assuming
that meaning can ever be ordinary), „child’s
play
“ while invoking the appeals to pedagogy, learning, and slave-tutors
to be found in „paidia’s“ semantic purview. While exploiting this polysemy,
I wish to recognize I do this by virtue of a kind of retrospection which,
takes up the differing continguities, discontinuities, and asymptotic vacillations
within the words‘ semantic histories, in such a way that it encompasses
those chronotropic heterogeneities and diachronic disjunctures within an
isomorphic palimpsest.
