Main results (resent)

The study of the epistemology of poetic reality is continued. The problems of cognitive poetics are considered. It is shown that the object of poetical investigation in a poetic work is the whole world, which is not divided into objective and subjective reality. The subject are the phenomena of consciousness, the product of their poetic meanings, creating a "world model" (Lotman). The typological similarity of scientific idealizations and poetic typifications is shown. The theoretical and cognitive functions of metaphor both in poetry and in science – are considered. It is shown how the metaphor functions as a cognitive tool. The author compares the role of apperception and imagination in scientific and poetic creativity (the result of 2020).

It is investigated the meaning-generating mechanisms of poetic creative activity of a person and compares the theoretical and cognitive functions of poetic and scientific creativity. It is shown that the artistic image has a number of typological features inherent in the ideal objects of science. It is demonstrated that such an elementary form of poetry, which is the word of the natural language by A.A. Potebnya, is epistemologically loaded and allows us to know the objects called by this word with the certain their features. The author also reveals the theoretical and cognitive content of complex poetic works, which poems are created by the authors, taking their place in the ontology of the social world (the result of 2019).

It is shown that, being "models of the world", poetic works perform a cognitive function, giving the reader knowledge of both the social situation in the country and the realities of the inner life of a person. With the change of the social situation, for the readers of the poem there is a semantic shift: part of the meanings of the poem irrevocably goes into the past, some of the meanings begin to speak more vividly. With a reflexive view of the past, the reader acquires a number of "eternal" meanings of the work relating to human existence in any time and any society (the result of 2018).
