"SCIENTIFIC ROMANCE": THE PROBLEM OF NON-EXISTENT GENRE

Koz'mina Elena Yur'evna
Ural Federal University named after the First President of Russia B. N. Yeltsin


Abstract. In the article the genre notion "scientific romance" is comprehended. A survey of foreign and domestic studies of this phenomenon is made, as a result of which it becomes clear that the term "scientific romance" can denote different literary sets. It is found out that the thematic complex "science and scientific discovery" combined with a certain image of the hero-scientist serves as a common denominator of different definitions of the genre. It is concluded that these parameters are insufficient to form the genre.
Key words and phrases: жанр, научный роман, scientific romance, "литература об ученых", научная фантастика, genre, scientific romance, "literature about scientists", science fiction.
