注释
Those who have theories about the theater are no doubt quite observant, at least the etymology of the word leads one to think so. The words theory and theater are related in ancestry if we look back to the Greek sources of our words. The Greek ancestor of theater is theatron, “a place for seeing, especially for dramatic representation, theater.” Theatron is derived quite logically from the verb theasthai, “to gaze at, contemplate, view as spectators, especially in the theater,” from thea, “a viewing.” The Greek ancestor of theory is the?, which meant among other things “the sending of the?i (state ambassadors sent to consult oracles or attend games),” “the act of being a spectator at the theater or games,” “viewing,” “contemplation by the mind,” and “theory or speculation.” The source of the??ros,} “an envoy sent to consult an oracle, spectator,” is a compound of thea, “viewing,” and -oros, “seeing.” Thus, viewing is at the root of a theory and the theater.
有戏剧理论的人无疑是相当善于观察的,至少这个词的词源学让我们这么想。如果我们追溯它们的希腊词源,单词theory 和 theater 的起源相关。 theater 的希腊语前身是 theatron (“尤指看喜剧表演的地方,剧院”)。 theatreon 相当符合逻辑地来自动词 theasthai (“盯着,注视,观看,尤指在剧院作为观众”), 来自thea, “观看”。 theory 的希腊语前身是 theoria , 其意义介于其它几件事物之间,它们是“派遣theoroi (派出咨询神谕或参加竟技会的政府使节)”“在剧院或竞技会上作为观众的行为”,“观看”,“专心注视”,和“看法和推测”。 theoria,theoros (“派出咨询神谕的使节;观众”)是 thea (“观看”)和 -oros (“看见”)的复合词。 这样,观看是theory(理论)和theater(剧院)的根源
