"only in rare cases, sense, improved by reading novels,
begins to affect things. Managers themselves "sensitive" literature
recognize that the world of fantasy is one thing, and the world of reality -- all
more. In a world of fantasy they can be dreamers and poets in the world
actually they are bureaucrats and feudalists" (Milyukov
P. Essays on the history of Russian culture. Part 2. SPb., 1902. S. 201)
As you can see, the Western influence primarily occurs at the level of
borrowing phenomena of life, not of ideas, which is the only semiotically more
mismatched, because ideas come more often in the context that
at the preliminary stage, it generates the semiotics of a different life. But in
domestic problems, the making of symbols out of reality is very
an important place. Take only two examples of "nation-building"
the methods of semiotics.
Ivan The Terrible - the king leaves the capital, taking with him the Treasury,
utensils, icons, dress.. "It is as if the abdication, with the aim
to test the strength of his power among the people. (...) Everything came to a standstill, the capital instantly
interrupted their regular classes: the shop closed, the orders are empty, song
silent. In the confusion and horror of the city screamed, asking the Metropolitan, the bishops, and
the boyars to go to the settlement, to brow beat the Emperor, that he never left the state"
(Klyuchevskii The course of Russian history. Part II. M., 1912. P. 224). Ivan
Ivan makes a semiotic act (since we have quasithree),
getting purely semiotic response to following the course.
