Chapter Summary

In the essay part, various examples of provincial thinking in Polish culture are recalled. In the thesis part, the phenomenon of provincialism is considered more thoroughly. It is argued that provincialism can be thought of as involving a distortion of a normal division of labor within a scientific school into creators (masters), correctors and applicators. The effect of provincialism occurs when this division is transferred onto whole cognitive communities: some (the centers) play the role of the masters while others (the provinces) are expected to play the role of correctors at best
