Short survey of cognitive literary studies
Languages of publication
The study contains a survey of cognitive literary studies, research programmes, disciplines and issues. The general goal of cognitive literary studies is to grasp and reveal common principles and processes of the literary text. Imagination and thinking, that means to give a cognitive explanation as to the operation, constituents, means and purposes of the literary process. The cognitive literary studies reassess the aims of traditional literary theory, its orientation to construct correct meaning, principles of the text and to determinate the value of artwork. If we add the authorial and perceptive procedural competences (memory, attention, emotions, etc.) to the system of literary notions, we will acquire better methodological instruments for the analysis of the literary expression and the shifts in perceiving thereof, the examination of literary understanding and its types, resolution of literary agents (author, character, reader), the analysis of reasons for popularity of literary works and value/negative value attributed thereto. It is expected that owing to that we can understand the main problem of literary theory not resolved yet – what literariness means.
