Agonism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Agonism

This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Agonism is a political theory that emphasises the potentially positive aspects of certain (but not all) forms of political conflict. It accepts a permanent place for such conflict, but seeks to show how we might accept and channel this positively.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, July 23, 8:07 PM

I used to keep a small dictionary in my bedside table, another in the end table near the couch, one on my home office desk and another on my desk at work. I’m rather particular about looking up words I don’t know, and I always wanted a dictionary within reach. When I was an undergraduate geology major, I had a specialized geology dictionary that I kept near my desk to help me understand words in my textbooks and scholarly articles that weren’t included in standard dictionaries.

Fast forward to 2014 and three of these dictionaries are gone, the fourth (in my office at work) is rarely used, and the geology dictionary is kept primarily for nostalgia. Several tools have replaced the standard dictionary:

  • When I’m using my Nook eReader, I can simple select a word to view a definition.
  • When I’m reading a book, my phone is normally in reach for quick lookups.
  • When I’m working, it’s easier to look up a word online.
  • Even when I need to go in depth with a word and its origins, I can turn to the online Oxford English Dictionary.

If you haven’t used it before, Google’s define feature is pretty handy. Just type in

define: word

While this feature works well for everyday difficult words, it is less successful for technical scientific language – those words for which my specialized geology dictionary was so handy. Luckily, we live in an age of crowd sourced knowledge.  While Google’s definition of foliation might not work from a geologic perspective, Wikipedia comes to the rescue with an entry about Foliation (geology). While Wikipedia is certainly not an dictionary, it is a great source for defining technical and scientific terms.
