A Literary Approach to Human Discoursal Interactions: Educational and Research Implications



The present study is an attempt to offer a study of the researchers' views regarding the interaction between literature and human discoursal interactions through a comparative, descriptive, and analytical approach. Five variables of discourse experimentation, research and educational consequences, anthropology, pragmatics, and intertextuality are investigated. The results of the study reveal a cause and effect relationship between literature and the human discoursal interactions. From educational and scientific point of view, the study reveals that poetic discourse consists of a creative system of relationships, strategies, and a special methodology for the comprehensive exploration of the nature of human communication. Therefore, the exploration of the literary system would result in the proper and appropriate exploration of the human communication variables, which in turn would influence the decision making in the processes of curriculum development and research orientations in intercultural areas such as teaching foreign languages and literature, translator training, and critical studies in language, literature, and translation. Moreover, the results of the study show that without the application of the literary discoursal strategies and structures, educational and research outlooks in human communication will not work. Since, literature- as a comprehensive social discourse¬- helps the researchers discover and develop gestalt teaching, learning, and problem solving strategies and resources in the area of human interaction and stops the unfavorable separation of sciences. So, to solve the multivariate problems of human educational system, the authorities should assume an interdisciplinary outlook.
