The problem of dialoguism of consciousness in M. M. Baklitin's work

Some aspects of the literary production of a famous literary critic and a historian of literature M.M. Bakhtin are analyzed. It is shown that Bakhtin created an original concept of the consciousness. The most important characteristic of the latter he saw in its inherent dialogism. The dialogism manifests itself not only in the contents of the mind (unwound and wound up dialogues), but in its structures as well. It follows from Bakhtin's work that there are two layers in the consciousness: an open and a closed one to introspection. The closed layer is the one where sits the universal dialogism of the mental structures - the dialogism which establishes the internal sociality and the dialectical character of the consciousness.
