Na temat publikacji:
This edited volume highlights the continuing relevance of Husserl’s phenomenology, through a selection of work from members of the Organization of Phenomenological Organizations. As their papers amply demonstrate, contemporary phenomenology retains its critical focus, even as the discipline continues to expand and diversify. The book consists of four sections. In the first, authors focus on the contemporary implications of Husserl’s critique of natural science and the problem of meaning; in the second, they draw upon phenomenological insights to help us understand present day social and ecological crises. The third includes contributions on the relationships between phenomenology, hermeneutics, literature and art; while in the final section, authors take up the work of prominent post-Husserlian phenomenologists to think through issues of language, interpretation, philosophy, religion and the history of ideas. In sum, the variety of approaches these thinkers take in order to understand issues that currently confront us richly demonstrates the enduring significance of Husserlian phenomenology for 20th- and 21st-century philosophy.
Tekst dr Aleksandry Łukaszewicz Alcaraz dotyczy analiz w ramach estetyki formalnej skupionych na geometrycznej abstrakcji w malarstwie na przykładzie prac Zbigniewa Romańczuka, a nosi tytuł: „Formal Aesthetics on Geometric Abstraction in Painting, with and Example of Zbigniew Romańczuk’s Works”.
Nowadays we face intriguing questions concerning the visibility of digital pictures. I will suggest that geometric abstraction in painting can help us reflect upon it, mediating the way in which we perceive a screen or a digital picture. In this paper I will show that because in geometric abstract paintings there is nothing recognisable and only what can be perceived remains, we can conduct phenomenological investigation in the field of aesthetics in the spirit of Merleau-Ponty. As a case study, I will analyse some paintings by contemporary Polish painter, Zbigniew Romańczuk, who consciously and explicitly aims at contemplating and reflecting upon digital visibility.
