Degrés de la connaissance littéraire

Abstract : In literary experience the pleasure of reading and the pleasure of knowing are mutually enriching. Even if literary experience, like all aesthetic experience, is first of all associative, linear and horizontal, and appears to be distinct from knowledge by concepts, of the vertical type (Schaeffer), it may also open up the way to knowledge of the third degree, that is knowledge of the other as subject or as subjective relation to the world. Such is the case in particular when literary experience takes the shape of literary reading and of its corollary, the reader’s own reformulation of the text. This degree of knowledge leans on the reflective faculty of judgment as it seems to be analyzed in Kant’s third “Critique”: contrary to the Kantian vulgate which underlines its anti-conceptual dimension, the reflective faculty of judgment is viewed here as a governing function likely to go beyond the antinomy of the objective and the subjective.
