Friedrich Dürrenmatt Herkules a Augiášův chlév

Jazyk: 
čeština ()

Toto video sem nepatří pouze zdánlivě. Friedrich Dürrenmatt byl obdivuhodný autor, jeho podobenství, znalost filosofie a smysl pro humor jsou nedocenitelné. Komedii a absurdní drama považoval za jediný žánr, který dokáže vyjádřit tragiku života, protože současnost nemá tragické hrdiny velkého formátu a zmatku této "moderní" doby odpovídá spíše groteska. Ve svých hrách je vždy aktuální a nadčaový a zároveň tvrdě kritický vůči současnosti, a to i tehdy, pokud si vybírá historické, mytologické nebo literární hrdiny. Ve hře Augiášův chlév vyjadřuje s komickou nadsázkou výzvu k likvidaci nepořádku ve společnosti, k "nápravě věcí lidských i božských". Dvanáct úkolů, které plnil jeden z největších hrdinů řeckých mýtů Hérakles (Hercules) na příkaz mykénského krále Eurysthea, a nesnáze, jež ho při plnění úkolů provázely, jsou hořké a směšné zároveň. Poukazují i na současný svět a lidské konání v celé své absurditě, propojují příkladným způsobem, filosofii s literaturou a poesií.

Eric Voegelin discusses Marxism irresponsible ethics, Max Weber's value free science, the necessity of reasons for conduct, and the necessity for a scholar to have a broad range of knowledge. "The core of the Marxian conception of history is that the nature of man can be changed. In order to achieve it you must first ask no questions concerning the structure of humanity. Now, the question of humanity is always existence, and the ground of existence. Or as technically called, the etiological question." There you have the definition of the socialist man: the man who doesn't ask questions".

Professor Bruno Latour: Vorlesung: Politics and Religion. A Reading of Eric Voegelin
Als einer der Begründer der Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie zählt Bruno Latour zu den heutzutage einflußreichsten Denkern im Bereich der Sozial und Kulturwissenschaften, der Anthropologie sowie der Wissenschaftstheorie und soziologie. Latour untersucht in seinem weitgespannten Werk, das auf zahlreichen Feldstudien basiert, die rhetorischen Strategien und technischen Artefakte, die bei der Konstruktion wissenschaftlicher Tatsachen am Werk sind. Technik und Natur sowie das Soziale sind in einem Netzwerk wechselseitiger Zuschreibungen von Eigenschaften und Handlungspotentialen miteinander verbunden. In seinen Büchern untersucht er die Auswirkungen seiner Wissenschaftsstudien auf verschiedene Felder des Sozialen, der Religion und der Anthropologie, sowie der Umweltpolitik. Unter den zahllosen Auszeichnungen finden sich neben fünf Ehrendoktoraten eine Anzahl namhafter Wissenschaftspreise, darunter 2013 den Holberg Memorial Prize. 2013 hielt er die Gifford Lectures und 2014 die Tanner Lectures.

Eric Voegelin on Ideologies' Destruction of Language

Jazyk:

According to Eric Voegelin: Ideologies destroy language inasmuch as the ideological thinker has lost contact with reality and develops symbols for expressing not reality but his state of alienation from it. Moreover, the destruction of language precedes the rise of types like Hitler. This destruction of language distorts reality and pervades public discourse and discussion even today.The restoration of reality can come only with the restoration of language.
