А.Ф. Лосев о классификации искусств в немецкой эстетике: тезисы 1933 года. Лосев А.Ф. Классификация искусств в немецкой эстетике. Подготовка текста и публикация П.В. Резвых
The article delivers a preface to and a commented publication of theses by the famous russian philosopher Alexey Losev written as he was no more a prisoner of the White Sea–Baltic Canal concentration camp but still lived and worked there. The author shows that Losev continues and elaborates in the manuscript the main ideas of his studies on the history of aesthetics from 1920s, first of all of his GAKHN lectures as well as his book „Dialectics of the artistic form“ (1927). At the same time the author demonstrates that Losevs conclusions about the contemporary evolution of art correspond to some key themes of his prosaic fiction from 1930s, particularly of his novels „Meteor“ and „Encounter“, both written about 1933. In the context of Losevs fiction his theses of 1933 can be read not only as an important source for reconstruction of his aesthetic theory but also as a document humain that reveals an existential dimension of his philosophy.
