Translated title of the contribution: Theatrology an Zich: Classical Prague theater theory today

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Study focuses on Otakar Zich's "theory of drama as theater" (mainly his Estetika dramatickeho uměni, 1931), his reception by the Prague structuralism of the 1930s, and his place in the history of Czech aesthetics. The confrontation with the Prague School of literary structuralism and semiotics reveals numerous paradoxical entanglements of continuities, differences, and misunderstandings. The study strives to de-psychologize and de-semiotize Zich's theory, which is, then, related with Edmund Husserl's work on meaning in his path-breaking Logische Untersuchungen (1900). A phenomenological focus can better explain Zich's disconcerting approach to his objects in numerous, and even apparently contradictory, "rounds". Study, then, takes Zich at his own method and explores ways of possible contemporary interpretation (in confrontation with Ivo Osolsobě's "ostension" and with "performance" theory) more faithful to his legacy.
