[23] Carnival, through its temporary dissolution or reversal of conventions, generates the 'threshold' situations where disparate individuals come together and express themselves on an equal footing, without the oppressive constraints of social objectification: the usual preordained hierarchy of persons and values becomes an occasion for laughter, its absence an opportunity for creative interaction. While official festivities aim to supply a legacy for authority, folk festivities have a critical centrifugal social function. According to Bakhtin, humans have a habit of making narrow interpretations, but such limited interpretations only serve to weaken the richness of the past. fY��)�NUæc�G{%'f��VIϭ�{�5�$�:$��� �z�BGU���m��^3��k��^#�z�mG�wl����-@%R�%�w�QwLԸ�]��DL�/=��3oi��%D���P��aN�]�@v��h��R�p``` @������ �)$� Htt@� ", "Response to a Question from the Novy Mir Editorial Staff" is a transcript of comments made by Bakhtin to a reporter from a monthly journal called Novy Mir that was widely read by Soviet intellectuals.

Dostoevsky always represents a person on the threshold of a final decision, at a moment of crisis, at an unfinalizable, and unpredeterminable, turning point for their soul. "[13] Bakhtin deals with the concept of morality whereby he attributes the predominating legalistic notion of morality to human moral action. "Bakhtin’s life work can be understood as a critique of the monologization of the human experience that he perceived in the dominant linguistic, literary, philosophical, and political theories of his time.
