Gibt es dichterische Erkenntnis?

Dieter Lamping


The relation between poetry and cognition has seldom been discussed theoretically due to the assumption that poetry has more to do with emotion than with cognition. The following article attempts to survey this field. It distinguishes between three types of cognition in poetry referring mostly to European and American poems of the 20th century: cognition that is caused by poems, cognition that is imparted in poems, and cognition that is formed in poems.
