The Power of Images: A Discourse Analysis of the Cognitive Viewpoint.
Frohmann, Bernd
Journal of Documentation, v48 n4 p365-86 Dec 1992
This discourse analysis of the cognitive viewpoint in library and information science identifies seven discursive strategies that constitute information as a commodity and persons as surveyable information consumers within a market economy: theoretical imperialism, referentiality and reification, representation and processing, radical individualism, knowledge, expert intervention, and instrumental reason.
