Literary and Philosophical Text in the Interconnection of Opinions (G. Vámoš: Atoms of God and The Principle of Cruelty)

Abstract

This paper focuses on the writer Gejza Vámoš (1951 – 1956), namely his two publications of different natures, i.e. the novel Atoms of God and his Dissertation thesis in philosophy, The Principle of Cruelty. These are texts that were more or less created in the same time period, and in which the writer communicated his philosophical worldview in almost identical ways. The aim of this paper is to show the semantic proximity of philosophical and literary communication, and at the same time to make accessible how the various philosophical theses were “imprinted” into the novel through a literary setting.

 

Key words 

Atoms. Bacteria. Biological philosophy. Dissertation thesis. God. Infection. Medicine. Novel. Philosophy. Principle of cohesion/cruelty. Principle of love.
