MIRCEA ELIADE AND THE “INSSUFICIENCY” OF LITERATURE
(Abstract)

The paper above briefly analyses the evolution of Mircea Eliade’s opinions on literature and its basic role in knowledge. Primarly considered as an impure synthesis of empiric and spiritual elements, inferior to art, literature eventually becomes, mostly by the concept of imagination implied, a privileged way to knowledge, similar to the old “theoria”, related to metaphysics and religion.

Cuvinte-cheie: MirceaEliade, literatură, artă, imaginaţie, cunoaştere.
Keywords: Mircea Eliade, literature, art, imagination, knowledge.
