Chesnov, Ya. V. Hermeneutics of Hidden Texts: Myth, Titanism and Longevity

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2013-5 in rubric "Hermeneutics", pages 680-691.

Resume: The article departs from the usual treatment of hermeneutics as applied to the written form and instead considers it in application to the spoken word of the popular culture. The hermeneutic tool used preferentially is the notion of genotext introduced by Julia Kristeva on the basis of Russian semiotics. The article shows the significance of the ideas put forward by Mikhail Bakhtin and Vladimir Bibler. The general definition of culture is borrowed from the works of Pavel Gurevich. The liberation of the genotext from the shell of the phenotext exposed the role of cultural sacrality and the titanic component in the self-definition of the human being. Those are the starting points of the behavioral traits in long-lived populations. The author considers the example of the Abkhaz culture which he had studied for many years.

Keywords: philosophy, hermeneutics, genotext, myth, kinesics, legs, chthonism, Titans, long-lived people, Abkhaz.
