Romanticism Founding Discourses

This text presents the issues related to the discourses which were formed at the beginning of the European Romanticism (mainly in German and English Romanticism) and which shaped the nature of Romanticism, which developed its self-knowledge and legislation. The concept of a change, a great epistemological, literary and anthropological breakthrough, proves to be the basic framework for the Romanticism founding discourses (cognitive, aesthetic and anthropological discourses are being reconstructed). Social and political processes constitute a background for this breakthrough; Romanticism proves to be a project of transforming the world. The depicted discourses are a certain source of dynamics of the formation (of the epoch), its creative energy.
