LITERÁRNÍ VĚDA A KULTURNÍ DĚDICTVÍ V PRAGMATICKÝCH SOUVISLOSTECH. K ODKAZU PETRA LIBY
(Literary Criticism and Cultural Heritage in Pragmatic Contexts. On the Legacy of Peter Liba)
Abstract: The study evaluates the methodological contribution of a Slovak literary scholar Peter Liba (1931 – 2020), who was one of the founders of the Institute for Research of Constantine and Methodius’ Cultural Heritage and the University of Constantine the Philosopher in Nitra. As a literary scholar, Liba significantly influenced the theory of interpretation and communication in a number of humanistic fields of study and thematic areas (folklore, popular literature, translation, children’s and youth literature, bibliography, biography studies, textology, culturology etc.). The study also defines the researcher’s autonomous position within the so-called semiotic-communication Nitra school and its expressive theory of the text, which the work of aforementioned professor enriched interdisciplinary with diachronic and comparative aspects of not only primary but also secondary communication. Within its framework, Liba elaborated on the problems of the functions of literary education, typology of reading and literacy, literary-museum communication, biography studies and circulation of the so-called degraded layers of literary development. As a literary theorist, he came from textological analysis and heuristic research to uncovering the connections between literature and culture and its ethical dimension.
