Abstract. Textual semantics is studied on the basis of subjective – objective reciprocal feedback, where the objective field is reconstructed from the eidetic images with the inversion of their inner relations. The priority belongs to the textual inner world, and the objective field is determined with an epoch’s concrete historical conditions. Mereology is developed within the framework of phenomenology as the logical theory dealing with the relation of “part –whole” that in difference to hermeneutics is based on the irreducibility of the whole to the parts and the reciprocity of this relation. The parts are divided into the autonomous and dependent, inner and outer ones. A text is regarded as a hologram where each part represents its functions within the whole. It is the textual frameworks that play the decisive role in textual integration together with reciprocal references of the distant parts and complementary relations. The paragon of framework is to be found in the cues of a role of a dramatic persona. It is due to distanced relations that the dimensionality of a text grows, it surpasses linear and planar limits, its depth and volume are revealed. Such means of frameworks as anaphora procure the textual division onto closed cycles.
