The article is an attempt at re-reading Kazimiera Zawistowicz-Adamska's book entitled 'Spolecznosc wiejska' (Rural community). The first part of the article is a critical review of the main positions adopted for a detailed exegesis of the book. Zawistowicz-Adamska's book is perceived as 1) a vade mecum of the researcher's field attitudes, 2) document-novel, 3) an autobiographic paraliterary text. The discussion of the book is carried out within the framework of metadiscourse of the history of scientific thought. A metaphor of Oliver Sacks' scotoma serves as the point of departure. In the second part the author makes references to modern methodological discussion on the role of an experienced field researcher and the linguistic forms used to record it. Against this background the author studies the structure of 'Spolecznosc wiejska' as a 'confessional story' and analyses the importance of the chronotopos of meeting. The third part focuses on the identification of common features between Kazimiera Zawistowicz-Adamska's project and the author's project, who conducts his research among the community of the hospice and those living in the Aid Centre for Chronically Ill.
