Skrócony opis:

Celem kursu jest zaznajomienie studenta z podstawowymi problemami z zakresu aksjologii oraz antropologii filozoficznej, jak również wyrobienie swoistej antropologicznej wrażliwości pozwalającej na pogłębione rozumienie różnych aspektów ludzkiego bycia. W ramach kursu analizie poddane zostaną różne wymiary bytu ludzkiego od cielesności po rozmaite formy doświadczenia religijnego. Szczególne miejsce zajmie pogłębiona analiza aksjologicznego wymiaru ludzkiej egzystencji. Będziemy starali się odpowiedzieć na pytania o genezę, charakter, status ontyczny, o sposoby rozpoznawania i uznawania wartości. Podejmiemy również próbę odpowiedzi na pytanie o możliwość konsekwentnego wykroczenia poza sferę wartości. Głównym polem tych analiz będzie sfera wartości etycznych i estetycznych.

Pełny opis:

The main aim of the course is to present the basic problems of axiology and philosophical anthropology as well as to create a specific anthropological imagination which will lead to a deeper understanding of different aspects of the human being. The basic premise of philosophical anthropology is the conviction, firstly formulated by sophists, then strongly atriculated and justified by Immanuel Kant, that all metaphysical, epistemological or ethical questions find their justification in the question concerning the essence of the human being. In other words, all reflection on the physical as well as social world, all metaphysical and religious systems as well as all scientific theories are always anthropological, taken from the anthropological perspective. They are an expression of the essentially human effort of giving meaning to reality. This effort, however, is always undertaken within the horizon of particular values. That is, on the basis of what is recognized as good, proper or adequate. Philosophical questions concerning the human being, then, are inextricably linked with axiology from the very beginning. Moreover, since the human being exists within a particular cultural community, which has its own tradition and history and which determines the basic forms of self-reference of the human being, philosophical anthropology is essentially interested in phenomena such as human historicity, linguisticality or more broadly intersubjectivity in their mutual relations with different (sometimes even conflicting) systems of values.

The module B will be centered around two main thematic field:

1. The body and the modes of its experience – within this field we will analyze the ways in which human body being the condition of possibility of every experience at the same time becomes the object of artistic-like activities as well as the object cultural strategies and techniques of management and training.

2. Culture and Creativity – this part is devoted to the arts and the aesthetic experience in general. We will analyze different forms and functions of art throughout history, as well as the cultural conditions of the reception and appropriation of the works of art. The main aim of this enterprise will be the exploration of the phenomenon of human creativity and the possible fields of its application. Hence, the category of artistic work or creation will be contrasted and confronted with the technical production and innovation. While doing this we will ask what happens with the work of art in the age of the domination of the technical paradigm. Then, we will investigate different modes of applying the artistic and aesthetic categories to these dimensions of human life which are not originarily connected with the arts. In other words: how the idea of creativity based on the artistic activity finds its application in the case of even the most mundane phenomena of everyday life? That will lead to the final problem of this part of the course – to which extent the experiences of human individuals living in the late modernity can be defined by the disappearance of the strict boundary between the real and the imaginary.
