Abstract: The article describes one of strategies of conducting and presenting interdisciplinary research based on catachresis (κατάχρησις, abusio). Catachresis understood as a figure of speech and as a model of worldview displays a potential in overcoming traditional methods of academic research practice. In the article, the thesis is elaborated and substantiated through an analysis of critical writings by two researchers: Michel Foucault and Donna Haraway
Description: Summary: The paper discusses one of the strategies of conducting and presenting interdisciplinary research based on catachresis (from Greek κατάχρησις, Latin abusio, translated into Polish as ‘nadużycie’ (abuse)). In the post-structural approach, what we convey and how we convey are strictly related, therefore catachresis, that abuse, both construed as a figure of speech and a worldview model reveals tremendous power of overcoming the ‘beaten tracks” of academic research practice. I do not claim that catachresis is the sole method enabling one to shift from disciplinarily to interdisciplinarity, but most certainly its inherent, default nature of transgression, abuse, of expanding semantic applicability makes such a shift possible. In the article, the thesis is elaborated and substantiated through an analysis of critical writings by two researchers, Michel Foulcault and Donna Haraway.First, I draw on Hayden White’s observations on catachresis which resulted from his analyses of Foucault’s writing. Subsequently, I argue that catachresis is a stylistic and worldview figure of the feminist and post-humanist discourse of Haraway’s.
