Dilemma of Cognitive Literary Studies

Sowon Park’s text, translated into Slovene, offers a concise introduction to the field of cognitive literary criticism, how it emerged, how it is defined and how it interrelates with existing criticism. Placing the development of cognitive literary criticism in a historical context, Park identfies a key issue that runs through interdisciplinary research across the divide between the ‘two cultures’ and across time. On the one hand, attempts to integrate scientific and literary knowledge are fraught with scientific reductions of the literary; on the other, attempts to preserve literary knowledge as a different-but-equal field of inquiry risks the complete exclusion from the hegemonic scientific discourse and a further marginalisation. What constructive possibilities there are in the future in the face of such a dilemma are presented and reviewed.
