Philosophy of the Fantasy Genre

Gogoleva S.A.

Humanitarian scientific thought nowadays aspires to greater universality, turning into a new scientific quality and trying to integrate into contemporary humanitarian space. First of all, reference should be made to such a well-known term as a philosophy of literature, which in recent years has become a separate area of scientific knowledge alongside of such cutting-edge disciplines as philosophy of culture or philosophy of art.

The study focuses on a specific genre of modern foreign literature-fiction and on one of the most popular and demanded its manifestations – the fantasy genre.

Key words: philosophy of literature, modern literature-fiction, fantasy genre.
