Abstract

Monografie prezentuje novou teoretickou perspektivu sociokulturní antropologie, která navazuje na aktuální zahraniční práce v tomto oboru. Kvantová antropologie opouští chápání člověka v pojetí klasické fyziky a hledá naopak ukotvení, které nabízí současná kvantová filozofie a teorie kvantové mechaniky. Z této perspektivy, a s odkazem na současný ontologický obrat v antropologii, reinterpretují autoři chápání kultury, sociálních skupin, jazyka, dekonstrukce, symbolů, mýtů či rituálů. Pozornost je věnována také podstatě percepční zkušenosti, prožívání, kolektivnímu vědomí a emocím.The book offers a fresh look on man, cultures, and societies built on the current advances in the fields of quantum mechanics, quantum philosophy, and quantum consciousness. The authors have developed an inspiring theoretical framework transcending the boundaries of particular disciplines in social sciences and the humanities. Quantum anthropology is a perspective, studying man, culture, and humanity while taking into account the quantum nature of our reality. This framework redefines current anthropological theory in a new light, and provides an interdisciplinary overlap reaching to psychology, sociology, and consciousness studies.

Abstract

Thought necessarily reflects the times. Following the tragedy of the Holocaust, this fact became ever more clear. And it may be the reason postwar philosophical texts are so difficult to understand, since they confront incomprehensibly traumatic experiences. In this first English-language translation of any of his books, Miroslav Petříček—one of the most influential and erudite Czech philosophers, and a student of Jan Patočka—argues that to exist in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond, Western philosophy has had to rewrite its tradition and its discourse, radically transforming itself. Should philosophy be capable of bearing witness to the time, Petříček contends, this metamorphosis in philosophy is necessary. Offering an original Central European perspective on postwar philosophical discourse that reflects upon the historical underpinnings of pop culture phenomena and complex philosophical schools—including Adorno, Agamben, Benjamin, Derrida, Husserl, Kracauer, and many others—Philosophy en noir is a record of this transformation.
