Types of Discourse
(which is accepts and makes function as true)
|e.g. defending a PhD, presenting a conference paper, publishing a paper in a peer reviewed journal, etc.||e.g. Publishing the company's annual report, annual employment review, the AGM, etc.||e.g. Delivering a sermon, administering sacraments, counselling a member of the church, etc.|
|Mechanisms and instances for distinguishing true from false statements.||Review by appointed supervisor, scientific argument and proof. (Dis)agreements in viva. Using canonical texts or authority, etc.||Review by auditors. Economic argument. Appealing to canonical texts (Harper, Porter, etc.) or consultants.||Review of sermon by church elders. Use of canonical text for authority. Appealing to higher authority.|
|Means by which each is sanctioned.||Examination by institutionally approved examiners. Public record. Conferment of degrees.||Report presented to the board of directors, delivered at the AGM.||Sermon delivered as part of liturgy. Linked to reading from Bible. "Thus says the Lord."|
|Techniques and Procedures accorded value in the acquisition of truth||Scientific method, research method.||General accepted accounting practices (GAAP), audit process, strategic planning, etc.||Biblical exegesis. Interpretation of church edicts, etc.|
|The State of those charged with saying what counts as true.||Supervisor must have PhD. Examiners must be recognised experts in their fields.||Auditor must be accredited. Managing director acts ex officio on behalf of shareholders. etc.||Must be a licensed minister of religion, and an appointed leader in a congregation.|
Seems a bit like different aspects: analytic, economic, pistic. Could add legal institutions (juridical), social institutions (social), etc. Especially in that each aspect has a distinct epistemology.
