讲座人:

Ellen Spolsky is Professor of English at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. She is a literary scholar and theorist who has published several monographs that deal with topics such as history of philosophy, cognitive cultural theory, iconotropism, performance theory, and some aspects of evolutionary literary theory (Darwinian literary studies).Her books and essays discuss both the universal and historically local aspects of Renaissance art, poetry and drama.

讲座内容:

Rather than denying the insights of post-structuralist theory, literary interpretation and theory with an evolutionary cognitive perspective actually nestles nicely within a central niche of deconstructionist thinking, that is, the critique of representation. What we learn from recent cognitive science is that the meanings of texts are indeed unstable and dependent upon contingent contexts. While theories of neuronal activity can be understood as analogous to the critique of representation, the cognitive evolutionary argument supports Stanley Cavell's counterproposal, that is, that while our representational powers are not ideal they are sufficient. It is possible then to argue further that the very flexibility that destabilizes meaning is not only good enough, it is responsible for our success, such as it has been, in building and revising human cultures.

 

从进化认知的角度来说,文学诠释及其理论并没有否定后现代主义的深刻见解,而是在后结构主义的中心位置找到了舒适的栖身之所,即所谓再现的批判。我们从最近的认知科学了解到的是文本的意义确实不是一成不变的,并依赖于可能的上下文语境。尽管神经元活动理论可以被理解为再现的批判的相似理论,认知进化理论支持了斯坦利·卡维尔的反提议,那就是,即使我们的再现能力并不完美,但仍是足够的。因此,也许可以进一步论证,使文本意义变化的灵活性不仅是足够好的,而且正是因为这种灵活性使我们一直以来,得以成功地建立和改进人类文化。
