Reception Theory and Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons)

- Reception Theory and Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) Of all the literary critical theories yet discussed, I find reception theory by far the most intelligent and rewarding.

This correlates to Berkeley's solipsistic analogy of a tree falling in the woods. Without a listener does it make a sound. Well, technically, it emanates vibrations, but only an ear will interpret those vibrations as sound....   [tags: Liaisons Dangereuses Dangerous Liaisons]

The Problem Of Perception And The Absolute Truth

- This statement relates to the problem of perception; and how one cannot perceive an absolute and true reality, without the interference of filters of knowledge. It defines the ongoing search for the absolute truth. Empiricist David Hume felt that, “all the materials of thinking -- perceptions -- are derived either from sensation or from reflection”, and thus all one (thinks one) sees, touches, tastes, hears and smells and what is mentally reflected upon, contributes to a constructed reality.
