OD OBRAZOV K MENTÁLNYM OBRAZOM V TEÓRII FIKČNÝCH SVETOV
From the pictures to mental images in the fiction world theory
Languages of publication
The text is primarily based on Lubomír Doležel’s conception of fictional semantics. When viewers think about the majority of audio visual works as well as when they recall or watch them, they do not perceive only the real (physical) pictures. They perceive mainly mental images that are inferred from real pictures. The text presents a theoretical model of the „process“ by which a viewer reconstructs a fictional world from the fictional text structure. It shows also that in a similar way we can explain the process of transformation of the real pictures into mental images as well. The introduction of the text briefly introduces the theory of fictional worlds and also the basic properties of the fictional worlds. The core of the study is an analysis of mental transformation of pictures itself. This analysis is not complex; it seeks rather to clearly show the basic principles of picture transformation. The focus is not put on the description of the basic cognitive processes since they are beyond the scope of fictional semantics.
