What does to be radical mean?

[Alexander the Great and the Gordian knot model] by Ana Bazac Etymologically, to be radical means to go to the “root of the matter”, that “for man, … is man himself”[i]. But this simple explanation is inherently abstract, if it is not developed in its multi facets concreteness. *** One aspect of the radicalness of thinking […]

The haptic culture

by Ana Bazac The touch is one of the five (human) senses pointed out by Aristotle. Some neuroscientists consider it the most important because of its power to develop emotions and sociality[1], but in fact once existent it is not about the competition between vision and touch[2], but about their harmonious manifestation giving the whole perception […]


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 […]

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[1] – 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 […]
