by Ana Bazac It is more probable that the purpose of knowing how was anterior to knowing what. But would this conjecture be plausible when we all are used to consider that to know means to understand what is in front of us, therefore, the what of things? Well, first we should ask what knowing […]
[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 […]
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, but in fact once existent it is not about the competition between vision and touch, 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.
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.

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 […]
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”.
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 […]
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 […]
