The Epistemological Attributes of Literary Theories

Xing Jianchang;the School of Chinese Language and Literature,Hebei Normal University;  
Literary theories are epistemological truth/prescriptions or principles on literature. The reception of literature calls for not only implicit understandings so as to achieve its realization in individuals,but also a reinvention in the epistemological arena,e. g. a rational construction concerning the interactions between literature and society,cognition as well as ideology. The major epistemological attributes of literary theories are being non-empirical,describable,interpretative and parasitic. Literary theories are non-empirical knowledge,because their major concerns are human souls,values and significances; literary theories are describable knowledge because as reflections on literature and related areas, they are conveyed by languages, which is comprenhensible; literary theories are parasitic because they do not always invent themselves — on the contrary,they are heavily dependent on knowledge of other disciplines. Parasitism,a limitation at first sight,actually tells us more about the uniqueness of this epistemological field.
