Conferenza ART - Adam Andrzejewski - Warsaw
ART (Aesthetics Research Torino) Philosophical Seminar
Prof. Adam Andrzejewski
(University of Warsaw)
Theatrical Scripts, Ontology, and Aesthetics
January, 12. at 6 p.m.
Abstract: The goal of my talk is to analyse the role of a theatrical script and its relation to the literary work and the theatrical performance. I put forward an Argument from Modality, which demonstrates structural and functional differences between literary works and theatrical scripts. Next, I shall answer some potential challenges to my argument. I demonstrate that the failure to realize the far-reaching consequences of a clear distinction between the literary work and the theatrical script is a source of confusion in the debate on the relata of the relation of interpretation. In particular, I show that the relation of interpretation does not hold directly between the literary work and the theatrical performance. It is mediated by the script.
