CONCLUSION
Having done the research and written the bachelor paper on theme Philosophical Aspects of the Concept DEATH in S. Beckett’s Play “Waiting for Godot”, the author of the present study came to the following conclusions.
Up to the philosophy of Modernism, life is an irrational, illogical, incongruous, chaotic phenomenon that has no reason. Senses that dominate in the world of Modernism are disillusionment, fragmentation, pointlessness, absurdity, destruction, anger, disbelief, desolation, and emptiness. A human being is represented as a lost, suffering, doom, disappointed, literally tired to death and idle creature. Samuel Beckett reflected disharmonious, unfinished, splintered world in his literary works through the main principles of philosophical movements of Modernism, such as Existentialism, Absurdism, and Agnosticism. He tried to pursue the elusive essence of the self, which, to him, manifested itself as a constant stream of thought and of observations about the self.
One of the modernistic aspects of the representation of the concept death in the play is the depiction of the category of time. Time is presented as abstract, inconsiderable, changeable, unreliable feature, where the past is unclear, the future is unknown, the present is inessential. This immateriality of time marks the existence of the characters by the category of death. When time stops everything loses its importance: it neither moves nor changes and eventually dies in stagnation.
The second philosophical aspect of the concept death is the absence of movement. Understanding of nothingness and lifelessness of life leads to absolute apathy and absence of movement. Vladimir and Estragon realise that they are stuck in waiting, being together, immaterial dialogs and insignificant actions. The absence of motion in the play is represented as a contradiction to the unstoppable progression of life, the main force that makes a clear difference between life and death. Life stops in the situation marked by stagnation.…
