The Antinomies of Folklore Values

Abstract

A paraphrastic transposition of Solar's "Antinomies of literary values" to the field of folklore studies is given in this paper. The core aim is to show the congruity of theoretical positions and the impact of the professor's critical thought within the small group of his former students, now folklorists at the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research in Zagreb. The first part of the text unveils some of the magic of Solar's interdisciplinary trickery, while the body of the text surveys the shifts in the approach to the study of folklore. In the conclusion, the author introduces a new dynamic concept of tradition as a possible value in folkloristics.
