Identität und Rolle: Kontext, Konzept und Wirkungsgeschichte der Genieästhetik bei Novalis (German Edition)

Die bislang unberücksichtigt gebliebene Vorstellung von einer "synthetischen Person", die einen "inneren Plural" ausbildet und so "in mehreren Personen zerteilt, doch auch eine zu sein vermag", steht im Zentrum der frühromantischen Genieästhetik des Novalis. Diese in der Auseinandersetzung mit Fichte entwickelte Denkfigur ist eng verzahnt mit der Salonkultur und literarischen Gruppenbildung um 1800, aber auch mit der naturphilosophischen Enzyklopädistik und der poetischen Praxis.

In the case of speech in the neo-mammalian brain, these links have existed for two hundred thousand years, in the case of emotion and memory in the proto-reptilian brain, with no cerebral cortex; for over two hundred million “silent” years. The remaining question of great importance to theatre performers is why, of all the impressions that are received by the brain, are certain neural representations remembered and all others forgotten or selectively adjudicated as of more or less importance? That is, assuming consciousness and attentiveness for the moment, how is any pattern retained as memory?

How do the physical events occurring in our brains, while we think and act, relate to our subjective sensations? —that is, how does the brain relate to the mind and to a unitary consciousness, which is what we want to portray onstage in any given moment? We may discover that the old definitions of consciousness are only a tiny portion of the real matter. Despite some points of contention, it can be speculated that, from a neuro-anatomical perspective, the human brain went through three phases before it became the modern functioning unit we describe as the mind of contemporary man.

Of interest to computer simulations, the human brain works in parallel sequences, with predetermined “patterns on patterns” that fire as a unit—and not singularly. This neural mapping creates verbal thought patterns and communication. To embody these “secondary association areas” with a physical presence called “mind” is the presumption of the species!

The adaptive nature of man is based on a discontinuous, reflective psyche that began millions of years ago.
