ETHNOLOGY AND PRAGUE STRUCTURALISM: PETR G. BOGATYREV
The article is aiming to shatter traditional view on Petr G. Bogatyrev's legacy as an 'typical' exponent of the Linguistic Circle of Prague. There are two reasons motivating the autor's doubt in this sense: firstly, Bogatyrev's conceptual base is - explicitly - derived from 'Gestaltpsychologie', repeteadly refused by Jan Mukarovsky whose doctrine represents in author's standpoint 'typical', genuine expression of Prague structuralism, and (secondly) whose phenomenological typology of functions serving as a 'tertium comparationis' proves a low-level conceptual elaboratedness of Bogatyrev's famous function of the 'structure of functions'.
