Good Soldier Svejk and a Sociological Account of National Identification
Polish Sociological Review 2(150), 2005, pp. 163-179
"The author proposes
a conceptual framework for an account of nationality which respects the
multidimensional nature of the nation and hence the contextual and multi-level
nature of national identification.
To illustrate his claims, the author quotes Jaroslav Hasšek’s The Good
Rules, and the Control Paradox: Can the Good Soldier Svejk Be Trusted?

text for those "in the know," a comfort zone that Kafka does not

Josef Švejk is able to evade public authority through word play, but Josef K.
is ultimately convicted by his 'criminal apprehension,' his guilty conscience in
the inhuman system."

The presentation of interactive language use as
cognitive is also a model of the type
“understanding as pseudo-understanding”. This kind of language use could be
