  • The East–West Dichotomy from the Perspectives of Comparative
           Civilization Studies

    • Authors: Antanas Andrijauskas
      Pages: 11 - 27
      Abstract: The present article is devoted to the critical analysis of dichotomical conceptions of relations between civilizations East and West. The deconstruction of the main concepts of Western philosophy of culture breaks the narrow borders of the rationalistic metaphysics and opens new methodological perspectives to the comparative culturology. Inquiring to the “marginal” cultures of the World and treating their symbols and forms as equal to those of the “central”, i.e. of the Eastern and Western cultures the postmodern comparativism looks for more complex model of civilization. The latter have to replace the traditional one, which seems too simple, for it overestimates the East and West dimension.

  • Creation “By Heat”. A correspondence between Lithuanian and Indian
           cosmogony (Lith. tàpti – Skr. tápati)

    • Authors: Dainius Razauskas
      Pages: 28 - 35
      Abstract: Some semantic arguments for connecting Lith. tàpti ‘to become’ with Skr. tápati ‘warms, heats’, tapas- ‘(creative) heat’ (IE ∗tep- ‘to be warm’) are presented in the article. On the one hand, Lith. tàpti is used in the cosmogonic sense, on the other, cosmogony is unambiguously connected with warmth and heat in some Lithuanian sources (to begin with S. Daukantas). Skr. tapas-, as is well known, also means just cosmogonic heat in the Rig Veda (X.129.3).There are still some additional, secondary arguments. These consists of brooding connotations of Skr. tapas-. In its turn, the cosmogonic warmth in the mentioned and some other Lithuanian sources is expressed by the image of brooding too. The main concept underlying the “creation by heat” is that of hardening, consolidation, Lith. tvérti. And this Lithuanian verb has not only usuall cosmogonic notion but is used by village folk just in the sense of “hardening”, i.e. brooding of an egg as well. Etc.
