Image via WikipediaI wasn't entirely sure that I knew what the word discursive meant, so I looked it up in the dictionary...
1. passing aimlessly from one subject to another; digressive; rambling.
2. proceeding by reasoning or argument rather than intuition.
3. philosophy Compare dianoetic of or relating to knowledge obtained by reason and argument rather than intuition.
Great, now I have absolutely no idea what dianoetic means.
