Summary/Abstract: The paper attempts to create a new model of literary hermeneutics based on the basic principles of quantum mechanics: Heisenberg's un-certainty principle, principle of superposition, collapse of the wave function, principle of complementarity. Through the so-called „quantum hermeneutics“, the possibility of adequately explaining the mysterious nature of artistic reality is explored, as described in „The Double“ of Dostoevsky. In this work, the Russian writer discovers the „formula“, that he will later apply in his last great novels.
