EVENT FACTOR OF THE SPATIAL-TEMPORAL CONTINUUM IN THE NOVEL “THE BURIED GIANT” BY KAZUO ISHIGURO

Dametken Kurmanbayeva [1] , Batima Zhumagulova [2]


The present paper considers the problem of the cognitive essence of spatial-temporal continuum in the novel “The Buried Giant” by Kazuo Ishiguro.   The integrative complicated concept ‘spatial-temporal continuum’ as a cognitive matrix represented in the system of cognitive contexts (structures of knowledge) includes concepts (Memory, Path, Journey) which belong to different conceptual fields.

The authors study the category Event and the category Space (through the category Path) simultaneously.  The category Event is represented through the concept Journey and viewed as an important factor for the dynamic development and changes of spatial-temporal continuum. The concept Journey represents itself the search for the Truth.

The study is based on the linguistic theory of frame semantics developed by Charles J. Fillmore. The usage of frame semantics will help to explain the ways of the formation of different meanings at the functional level.  In this study frame semantics method will help to disclose the meaning and interdependence of a set of events in their temporal continuity.

The authors come to the conclusion that cognitive contexts of the category Event lead to the same cognitive-conceptual fields and cognitive-contextual meanings identified while analyzing the category Time (the concept Memory). The findings prove the dialectic unity of Space-Time-Matter.
