The article is a response to questions posed by Katarzyna Bielawna in the former text. The author indicates that the majority of questions may be dismissed by a closer examination of the book’s structure for it was planned not to be a fully comprehensive textbook of the comparative studies of discourse but merely a collection of articles/research papers concerning various texts of culture, assembled in order to present various realisations of the theoretical issue of the comparative studies of discourse. The author expands his understanding of the term “discourse”, based on its usage in Michel Foucault’s writings. It is claimed in the text that there shall always be two major aspects of discourse. Firstly, this term shall be understood in a broad meaning – “everything is a discourse” – and hence everything may be perceived as performative and persuasive since discourse is never “innocent”. Secondly, discourse may be understood as an individual commentary, remaining in resistance towards the official discourse. As the author claims, there is no inconsistency between the two usages of the term “discourse”.
