Ο μοντερνισμός και το 'ανοιχτό έργο'
Please note: this article is in Greek. Modernism and the open work of art: The paper examines the rise of polysemy within the context of modernist poetics. Taking its lead from U. Eco “Opera Aperta” and R. Barthes “S/Z”, it develops the idea that polysemy blossomed as a result of a new epistemological and cultural paradigm which emerged in the western world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It argues that the rapid development of specialisation and fragmentation of knowledge, which are central to this change, contributed to a new perception of reality which in turn gave rise to the open work of art.
