by Ana Bazac An important aspect of the human relationships and positions towards norms and even towards values is discipline or, better, the degree of discipline: and certainly, its feedbacks to relationships, norms and values. The pandemic has emphasised just the shortcomings of this necessary order in society and, more, of this accepted order.
Science as a factor of tradition and change: some methodological remarks
by Ana Bazac My first point is to show that, between the cultural traditions, there are not only particular/specific elements which would have forged and would forge the culture of a people, but also universal elements. These universal elements intertwine with the other ones, are transposing through the other ones: their translation through and by […]
Spațiul reformelor de modernizare: cazul Alexandru Ioan Cuza
de Ana Bazac 1) Spațiul – se referă aici la limite: cât se poate reforma/cât se putea reforma (de către Alexandru Ioan Cuza) 2) Reforma: etimologic = schimbarea formei/aducerea la o formă nouă (a tuturor lucrurilor); dar nu orice schimbare/înnoire este o reformă; definiția de lucru/eficientă propusă este: reforma este decizia politică de sus cu […]
Cine e dat jos de pe piedestal?
de Ana Bazac Metafora pe care am folosit-o în titlu – coborârea de pe piedestal – nu este legată defel de politică în mod vulgar, nu este vreo bucurie sarcastică în fața pierderilor și câștigurilor unor oameni politici mult depășiți de problemele reale; ci a pornit de la atitudinea actuală a societății față de medici/personalul […]
What people do not want to imagine
by Ana Bazac The problem expressed by the title has no simple psychological solution: like “people do not want to feel pain and thus do not want to transpose mentally into the minds of those who suffer”.
Short term logic, long and large term logic: the human rationality and telos
by Ana Bazac I As it is known, the scientists have distinguished the types of human rationality – practical, theoretical, formal and substantive, said Max Weber – as well as the pattern of the human rationality: to always correlate the means and the end of an action and to make this correlation in the frame of/according […]
Trecerea sub tăcere și instituțiile negative: o introducere
de Ana Bazac În loc de captatio benevolentiae: antropologie și fenomenologie Sub o întrebare filosofică (diferența dintre antropologie și fenomenologie) ce, pentru un non-antropolog, pare necesară, se prezintă doar o schiță a unui fenomen suficient de răspândit pentru a fi cercetat: antropologic și, deci, multi și interdisciplinar. Într-adevăr, dacă – plecând de la vechile direcții […]
The human being, the image of its socially induced immitigable destiny and the “yellow vests”
by Ana Bazac Yes, when we are tempted to chitchatting about how clumsy are some people who cry “we can no longer stand all of that”, we should think of our “humanism” cherishing the Man. But if we chatter “in a humanistic mood”, it means that we are comfortable doing this and, in our blindness framed […]
Requiem for a failed referendum: still philosophy
by Ana Bazac I wrote a paper – The breaking importance of the Romanian referendum for the traditional family: philosophical arguments –. The liberals who read it were disturbed by the arguments I advanced for the referendum and tried to counter them with the usual reference to the human rights and the discriminations towards LGBTI.
The breaking importance of the Romanian referendum for the traditional family: philosophical arguments
by Ana Bazac First, the referendum as such – around the recommended change in the Constitution that the marriage be considered a freely consented union between a man and a woman, and not between spouses as it was the formula until now – and its stake, the traditional family, namely formed, as basis, by a […]
