Filosofia da linguagem no século XVIII
Filomena Aguiar de Vasconcelos
AbstractThe context of 18th century thought is of particular relevance in the Western World in regard to the change of traditional mimetic to non-mimetic poetics: this is the case with the Swiss poetical theories of possible worlds and with the romantic, post-romantic and modernist sequences from about the 1740's / 1750's until the 1930's / 1940's. Emphasis ill be placed, however, on the influence of Leibniz' thinking on language in the creation of a valid alternative to mimetic theories through the concept of possible worlds.
