The starting point for our study was provided by certain Russian works on poetics; their basic propositions undergo critical examination in our opening chapters. However, here we shall not consider and assess trends and particular works considered as a whole and in their historical determinateness. Our principal interest is restricted to the purely systematic value of their basic concepts and propositions. Surveys of works on poetics of a historical or informational nature are not considered in our investigation , as they are not always appropriate to studies which set for themselves purely systematic goals, where only theoretical positions and arguments can have significance.

The starting point for our study was provided by certain Russian works on poetics; their basic propositions undergo critical examination in our opening chapters. However, here we shall not consider and assess trends and particular works considered as a whole and in their historical determinateness. Our principal interest is restricted to the purely systematic value of their basic concepts and propositions.

Surveys of works on poetics of a historical or informational nature are not considered in our investigation , as they are not always appropriate to studies which set for themselves purely systematic goals, where only theoretical positions and arguments can have significance. Wehave also freed our study from the superfluous ballast of citations andreferences, for they lack any direct methodological significance in studies of a nonhistorical nature, while in a compressed work of a systematic nature they are entirely superfluous.

For the qualified reader, they are unnecessary,and for the unqualified, useless. The Study of Art and General Aesthetics Work of the most serious and productive kind is being carried out in Russia at the present time in the field of the study of art. Russian scholarly literature has been enriched in recent years3 by valuable works on the theory of art, especially in the area of poetics. One can, in fact, speak about a certain flowering of art study in Russia, especially by comparison with the preceding pe- [] SUPPLEMENT riod, when the domain of art was a principal refuge for various kinds of scientifically irresponsible chatter with pretensions to profundity.

All those ideas and considerations, which appeared to be profound and productive in life, but which could not be included in any single discipline, i. This aestheticized, half-scientific thought, which sometimes by misunderstanding called itself philosophical, always clung to art, sensing its not entirely legitimate blood relation to it.

The situation is now changing. Recognition of the exclusive right of scientific thinking in the domain of art study is becoming common even in lay circles. One can almost speak of another extreme , of a vogue for science, of superficial imitation of science, of a prematurely self-confident scientific tone where the time of real science has not yet come. Forthe striving to construct a science, at any cost and as quickly as possible, frequentlyleads to an extreme lowering of the level of problematics, to the impoverishment of the object under study, and even to the illegitimate replacement of this object—in this case, artistic creation—by something entirely different.

As we shall see below, the new Russian poetics has not always succeeded in avoiding this pitfall. Constructing a science concerned with some particular domain of cultural creation, while preserving all the complexity, fullness, and distinctiveness of the object under study, is an extremely difficult undertaking.

Despite the indisputable fruitfulness and significance of many Russian works on poetics published during the past few years, the general scientific position taken by the majority of them cannot be accepted as entirely correct and satisfactory. This criticism applies especially to works by representatives of the so-called Formal or MorphologicalMethod,4 although it can be extended to include some studies that do not accept this method entirely but share with it certain general presuppositions.

The excellent works of Professor V. Zhirmunsky5 are a case in point. The unsatisfactory nature of the scientific position assumed in these works on poetics is, in the final analysis, the product of an incorrect or, at best, a methodologically indeterminate relationship between the poetics they are constructing and general, systematic , philosophical aesthetics.

The scientific study of art is, in fact, often defined by way of contraposition to philosophical aesthetics known to be nonscientific. Constructing a system of scientific judgments about a particular art in the present case, verbal art independently of questions concerned with the essence If you would like to authenticate using a different subscribed institution or have your own login and password to Project MUSE.
