Title
P. Otlet's Mundaneum and the international perspective in the history of documentation and information science
Source
Journal of the American Society for Information Science. 48(1997) no.4, S.301-309
Year

Abstract
According to Paul Otlet, in order to face the worldwide interdependence which was evidenced in the World War I, we need an international centre for the storage and dissemination of knowledge: The Mundaneum. To study this utopian project is to study how positivism, centralism, and monumentalism have determined Otlet's international perspective. His project of a colossal Bibliopolis contrasts very much with the position of Georges Bataille who denounced the totalitarian threat of centralized monumental structures. In spite of his centralism and his monumentalism, Paul Otlet foresaw our worldwide networked environment. His 3-dimensional conception of information can be still useful for developing Computer Assisted Palaces of Memory connected to International Virtual Libraries
