Pragmatismus Johna Deweyho a literární teorie Wolfganga Isera
John Dewey’s Pragmatism and Wolfgang Iser’s Literary Theory
Languages of publication
The main aim of the text is to show the close relations between John Deweyʼs pragmatist theory of art and Wolfgang Iserʼs literary theory. Although there is a little theoretical attention paid to the connection of Deweyʼs and Iserʼs theories, the study tries to show that there are striking similarities between both theories. The study traces them in two subsequent parts. The first one shows the urge of both authors to overcome traditional dualities in philosophy and literary theory and to point out the underlying processes, which make such dualities possible. The second part tries to concretize the effect of an experience of an artwork on its recipient in the theories of both authors.
