The goal of the research is revealing the existence of humanization of myth as a holistic and uniformly identifiable literary phenomenon in the intellectual prose of the 20 th century, developing Th. Mann’s discovery by means of a system comparative research based on a number of representative literary works. Objectives of the research: demonstrating the formation of the phenomenon by means of specific dynamic constants; identifying its invariance to variations of correlation of chronotop, composition, interpretation of intellectual prose with those of its basic mythologems, and variations of their interference.
Scientific novelty and originality of the thesis: for the first time, humanization of myth becomes the subject of a systemic scientific research; the formation of the investigated phenomenon via specific constants and its invariance to the variation of a number of factors are demonstrated; the “central thesis” by N. Frye that literature re-creates mythology is developed with reference to humanization of myth.
Fundamentally new scientific results. Systemically revealing the phenomenon as ethicizing harmonization of the Universe by means of mythological structures. Forming a corresponding interpretation model. Identification of a special type and a special sub-specie of intellectual prose’s basic mythologems. The ore tical significance. The scientific definition, the method of uniform identification of the investigated phenomenon, and the classification of intellectual prose’s basic mythologems are developed.
Application value of the thesis. The thesis can be used as a multidisciplinary model for researches, methodologies, lectures (on literary theory, comparative literary studies, philosophy of culture, cultural anthropology, folklore studies, etc.) and for developing the concept of the “new humanism for the 21st century” (UNESCO).
Implementation of scientific results is reflected in scientific publications and communications, the author’s scheduled work (IPC), and a special course on humanization of myth.
