Philosophy of fear

Usual opinion is that philosophy talks about some metaphysical themes. But no one can understand that philosophy is here, in everyday life, and even in the phenomenon of fear. It is very ugly feeling, but we can not runaway from it. Sometimes it is good for us, sometimes it is bad, however, we need to use to it and realize that we can not live without that. After that it should be easier for all of us. We can not always think about fear like something that will stop us in our intents. Many philosophers have different opinion about fear. Especially in contemporary philosophy. One Norwegian philosopher became pretty famous because of this theme, and he is Lars Svendsen. He writes about themes which are popular in our modern society.
What is the fear? Well, it is pretty hard to explain in just a few words. There are many definitions of fear, even those of scientists. How does it feel? We all know that, but is hard to explain, hard to find words to describe that feeling. But one is for su…

Idea of love

In philosophy we usually talk about ideas, and they are more real than anything else, especially for us. But sometimes it is hard to explain people what that term idea means for us, for philosophers. It is very hard to explain, especially when you try to do it with Plato’s philosophy. However, I think I need to explain some things about love, because, we can not think of it just as something that happens between two people. It is much more, much deeper. You can love many other things. In the end, you do not have to love people at all, you can love everything else.
Romantic love during the historyIt is well know that housewives usually read those boring books about big, endless, romantic love, just fill time. Because it is all what they do. During the history, there were to many boring novels about unrealistic love stories, made only for young girls to deceive them, or for housewives who were hoping for better future and that wonderful man who would save them from the everyday boring li…

Firentinska žudnja

Ljubav na prvi pogled
Svakodnevna tema je ta neponovljiva ljubav na prvi pogled, o kojoj se raspravlja, piše, i ko zna šta već. Neki silno vjeruju da je za veliki osjećaj dovoljan jedan pogled, dok drugi ismijavaju takve teorije u neobjašnjivoj sili. I onda se nađemo svi negdje između, kad treba da shvatimo da ljubav percipiramo potpuno pogrešno i da ništa nije onako kako se čini i kako izgleda. I taj osjećaj možemo osjetiti u raznim situacijama, a ne samo kada vidimo neku drugu osobu. Slučajno zakoračimo negdje u istoriju i ispliva nešto što nikad nismo ni mogli očekivati, i jeste ljubav ili čak i neka jača sila, ali ljudi su tu bespotrebni.
Čeka nas istorija
Sjetimo se nakratko renesanse, nakon onog mračnog doba, koja u suštini i nije bilo toliko mračno. U tom mraku su izrastala fascinantna djela, i nauke i umjetnosti, ali pošto je sve bilo pod papskom palicom, često se nadvijao mrak na sva postignuća. A onda renesansa, svjetlo, nada, nove stvari, koje su samo nova verzija, poboljšana…

Werther's universe in 21st century

The begginingJohann Wolfgang von Goethe, the one of the greatest in world of poetry, and well known as admirer of Serbs. Also he became famous by his works, especially “Faust” and “The Sorrows of young Werther”. People are still fascinated with his works and way of writing. But then it was common style for all writers and poets. Romanticism is an era with a lot of overwhelming feelings and it is all about running away from the harsh reality, and also about unhappy love stories and endings. So Goethe was a classic example of his time. But also there is “Sturm und Drang”, the movement that was characteristic for Goethe.
WertherismToday we do not use this term so often. But not so long ago after publishing “The Sorrows of Young Wether” it became very popular. It was used as explanation for a lot of suicides that young people committed, all because of unhappy love. They revived with the hero of the Goethe’s book, and they do exactly the same thing as he did. And in one moment there were a…

Brainwashed

Every single day same scenario. I do not have time for myself or for anybody. Can not do some things that I like and enjoy or go out with friends. I became to tired for all of that. Wondering why? I tell you why. It is not some sad story, it is only real life, that everyone must fight with. Working, a small meaningless job, that destroys our brains, that is the only reason why I lost every desire for life and joy. And I am not the only one. If I lost everything now, what would happen later, when I become old? What to expect then? Probably nothing.
Growing upAs a child you can see unknown dimensions for the grown up. But they do not understand you, because you are just a kid, and nobody takes you seriously. You are made for playing all day long, and you should not have any problems. That sounds so wonderful. But it is not real childhood. It is just mistake, our mistake, we do not want to get them. And now we do not remember how we felt in those moments. Otherwise we would be very sorry…

I can not

You know how everybody had used to tell us that being strong is one of the best qualities that person can have. And partly it is true. Imagine you fail on your exam and broke into tears in front of everyone, or flip out because you can not get a day free from work and  you wanted to go on  that soccer game so badly. You're 21 and you're acting like a spoiled rat, what a looser. But you are tough and you would not allow this to happened to you. So,when some unsatisfying situation hits you, you stop for a second, breathe in, breathe out couple of times and just let it go. Yeah, sure, you will deal with it somewhere private when you are alone, just like they taught you, but for now you are ok and there stops everything. The question that lot of people forget to ask themselves  is – Am I really OK?
Deal with problems laterThis is definitely a useful technique to overcome some situations, but the main problem about it is generalization. We generalize and simplify everything but we c…

One morning in Bristol

This is not pretty for me, or for anyone who thinks. It is hard to live every day the same way. It is hard to see same people every day, to go to the same job that you hate, it is hard to have same problems every single day. And now I really do not have clue how to figure it out. I hope that one day would be better and the things would change. But here, there are almost no chances for that. Especially when you are looking for a job as a writer or philosophy professor. It is really sad and frustrating. Only you can do is to runaway from here. Many young people do that almost every day. There is no future for anyone who is educated, and who wants to make some progress in life and career.
Grief in the morningEvery single morning, I must get up and go to work, boring job for students. It should be part time job, but we must work full time and we get paid as we are working part-time. After that I must run to the class. And every single day like this. After finishing college, there is almos…

Život unutar futurističkih tendencija

Inspiracija za mržnjuSjetite se svi onog “Rad oslobađa”, i ne baš tako popularnog i voljenog, ali svi ga znamo. Morbidno je što krećem baš od toga da pričam o jednom pokretu u umjetnosti. Ali taj pokret je bio i u svakodnevnom životu, i mnogo je uticao na tadašnji svijet, a tako i na nas danas. Nismo toga ni svjesni, a živimo u futurizmu, živimo iako nemamo hrabrosti koja nam je potrebna za mnoge stavove. Stalno slušam osude ljudi koji jedva znaju da se potpišu, koji ne znaju ni dvije rečenice sastaviti o bilo čemu vezanim za umjetnost ili društvo, ili bilo koju drugu temu, kako je futurizam zapravo nešto što je prethodilo nacizmu i fašizmu i da se to upravo izrodilo iz futurizma. Niko ne opovrgava da ima sličnosti, da su oni tražili u svemu do tada prihvaćenom neko opravdanje, ali to ne znači nužno da je futurizam začetak svega toga. U samom Manifestu Marineti govori da su “gomile zavedene radom”. Istina je da se to može lako povezati sa logorima, ali zar nismo i danas zavedeni radom…

Homoseksualnost: ljepota ljubavi ili moderna bolest

Posljednjih godina se neprestano priča na temu homoseksualnosti, i odabira seksualnosti uopšte. Mnoštvo podjela, možda i previše, i veoma je teško ući u tu temu, a da se neko ne nađe uvrijeđen ili čak izostavljen. Jedni govore da se ljudi rode ovakvi ili onakvi, odnosno da se rode kao homoseksualci ili heteroseksualci, ili nešto pak treće. Drugi opet tvrde da je sve to čovjekova glupost ili bolest. Treći opet nešto svoje. Svako svoje mišljenje stavlja u prvi plan i želi da ga nametne kao jedino tačno i ispravno. Ja ne želim da ulazim u takve vrste rasprava, jer iskreno me takve rasprave ni ne interesuju, niti imam neki određen stav o tome. Neka svako radi šta želi sa sobom i svojim životom, samo neka to ne nameće drugima kao nešto što je ispravno ili jedino, a to danas ljudi rade. Svi, za sve moguće, ne samo što se tiče stvari koje su vezane za seksualnost. Izgleda da ni jedni ni drugi nisu toliko otvoreni i moderni da jednostavno puste onu drugu stranu, i da se ne zamaraju šta ta dru…
