Abstract

The article examines Pascale Casanova's and Franco Moretti's innovative conceptions of history of world literature against the background of Erich Auerbach's more traditional conception. The cornerstones of the latter - a unified perspective, a clearly defined phenomenon, an intuitive hypothesis - may be discarded, but the fundamental problem of constructing the object understudy is still unresolved.
