Alice Armini

Abstract


This study aims to describe the comparison of the living philosophy of French and Javanese society through the main character fox (Le Renard) and the main character of Kancil (mouse deer). The literary works that are compared in this study are French fables of la Fontaine Le Corbeau et Le Renard, Le Coq et Le Renard, dan Le Bouc et Le Renard with fables by Prince Arya Sasraningrat, Serat Kancil Amongpraja, and Serat Kancil Kridhamartana. Data retrieval were done by means of content analysis, to find the essential meaning of the text behind the equations and differences of fable deer and fox. The intersection of the living philosophy of French and Javanese society through the fox and mouse deer figures can be demonstrated by the similarity of life philosophy to help, the philosophy of life alert, not arrogant and mocking the other side. The similarity of the philosophy is also seen in the character of these two animal figures, both of which are described as ingenious and cunning.
