Beyond methods and models, concepts and hypotheses, comparative literature deals not only with concordia discors, but also with coincidentia oppositorum. What shall be termed here the CD EFFECT (The Concordia Discors Effect) is almost everywhere discernible. Texts and images, graphs and maps, diagrams, atlases, dictionaries, encyclopedias - are the “triumph” of balance and harmony. All these corpora are the result of an “infinite” succession of macro-linguistic operations, of micro-literary mechanisms, of protocols of cultural macro-trends, of Euro-Atlantic and Asian mentality macro-fluxes. It is a hypothesis the present study submits to the test of Popper’s refutability.
