THE PSYCHOLOGY OF INFERNAL DOPPELGANGER OF THE HERO

IN THE NOVEL BY THOMAS MANN THE “DOCTOR FAUSTUS”

G. R. Konson

RSSU, Moscow

The article analyzes the psychology of infernal Doppelganger of the hero in the novel “Doctor Faustus”. The Doppelganger is a liar distorting the essence of the objective phenomena, despite of his efforts to look truthful and positive. Simultaneously the image of the Doppelganger is shown as a very erudite psychologist and cynic with schizophrenic thinking. And he is a whole treated not as an independent phenomenon, but as a product of depersonalize human consciousness. This split personality is specifically depicted by T. Mann in order to be able to “see” the antagonist living inside the man and study the psychology of such antagonist.

Key words: Thomas Mann, “The Doctor Faustus”, Adrian Leverkiihn,  Doppelganger, character, psychology, philosophy, culture, art, music, Nietzsche.
