L’espace du sens. Approches de la philologie indienne / The Space of Meaning. Approaches to Indian Philology

Abstract : For philologists, a text is a terrain to explore in minute detail in order to trace both a genealogy and the emergence of meaning. One must examine the traditions within which the text makes sense, or against which it posits itself, so as to shed light on all that concerns its meaning: its origins, developments, forms, nuances, peculiarities. If a text’s «real meaning» can never be singular, but instead «the sum total of meanings attributed to [it] over the course of its history» (S. Pollock), it is only in a given cultural context that meaning takes shape. Along with its times, a text’s meaning is a function of its spaces: the universe and network within which it is reproduced or transformed. We have therefore sought here to stress the text’s anchoring in a given cultural space, and to present philological practices as so many possible approaches to this space of meaning.
