pogum naslovkaZbornik, ki je pred nami, je že četrti v seriji, ki sledi vsakoletnemu dogajanju simpozijske in konferenčne narave, ki jih vselej dopolnjujejo tudi delavnice. Lanskoletno četrto redno srečanje, ki se od leta 2013 odvija vsako leto, je prineslo obilo bogatih razmišljanj na temo Pogum za dejanje. Tokrat je k razmišljanju o tej temi, ki na nek način nekako povzema dejavne premisleke preteklih let, nagovoril s svojim uvodnim prispevkom prof. dr. Štrajn.
Sledi štirinajst esejev in študij vrhunskih strokovnjakov iz osmih držav, večina izmed njih so že stari znanci naših srečevanj. Eksistencialna filozofija, ki se navdihuje zlasti iz Kierkegaardove misli, je vse večji izziv, na lanskoletni delavnici se je kazal v širokem razponu od družbene kritike, ki vselej potrebuje tudi ton polemičnosti, pa tudi samokritičnosti in odmika, pa vse do tiste sintagme, ki bi ji Kierkegaard dejal »višja norost«.
Ovesti se etičnih problemov, ki tarejo subjekta, je že napotitev k filozofiji, ki te primora k dejanju. Obenem gre seveda tudi za to, kako preseči dano situacijo, kako ustvarjalno preoblikovati svet, ki je poln zla, zmede in kaosa, v bolj človeški svet v harmoničnem dihu celote. Pogum za dejanje morda lahko premaga malodušje obupa in v gibanju svoje dejavnosti prinaša zdravilen učinek.
Upam, da bodo izbrana besedila nagovorila bralce, in morda koga tudi opogumila k lastnim dejanjem, ki vztrajno, čeprav navidezno komaj vidno, spreminjajo svet.  

repetition0001The contemporary human, the mass or herd man, “freely” accepts the (concentration) camp as his life space, bringing him only self-destruction. Whilst our subjective time is being stolen from us, the space of our concealed inwardness loses its place: it becomes “the inacceptable point” with-in the camp: the boredom of everyday and passionless routine. The destruction of the metaphysics of presence is not enough. The fundamental turn must come from the metanoia, from the in-between of blissfulness and madness. The atopos of repetition happens then perhaps on the borders of revelation, and is at the same time is not afraid to reveal itself beyond ontology as existence, which in its own changeability is unchangeable. The single individual’s original space of selfness is dispersed, yet at the same time is also conscience, the place paradoxically hidden in the polemical (and not in philosophizing with a hammer, as Levinas would moralistically reproach yet another Zarathustrian vision preserving the open ambiguity of a concrete otherness contra “lie (mass, herd, pack)”)

Kierkegaards metaethical fragments 1In this book, Dr. Mahrik succeeds in laying bare Kierkegaard's ideas (which were novel for his time) with a new intensity and new urgency for the professional and wider readership. I consider many of his insights, observations and analyzes to be unique and relatively rare among current experts worldwide. Those who want to dig deeper into the roots of the current discourse on ethics will welcome Mahrik’s Iucid introduction to the nature of Kierkegaardian metaethicaI thinking because of his relevance and accuracy.

Svate dny židovskeho 1The authors of this publication focus their attention primarily  on the area of the Ashkenazi Jews, which is closer to us geographically than the area of the Sephardic (and other) Jews. These other areas are referenced only marginally. We have also chosen to offer a solid, yet not overwhelming amount of information to our readers pertaining to liturgy. Liturgy is subject to change depending on the year's seasons, territory, as well as the customs of the local communities. Thus, we have only focused on the main stream and contents of the most important prayers.

The publication is divided into five main parts. Besides an (1) Introduction and a concise discussion of the authors' goals and methodology, we offer (2) a definition of key terms, (3) we list relevant pri mary sources for examining the holy days of the Jewish calendar, (4) we introduce the Jewish calendar itself and (5) offer some concluding remarks. Individual chapters of this publication have been written on the basis of listed pri mary sources and secondary literature. The titles of the Tanach books are cited in their Hebrew original, which we consider more appropriate given our topic, than to cite them using the "Czech Ecumenical Translation" as has become a common practice today.

Kierkegaard Pon kot dog 2016 1Pred seboj imamo sadove dela s 5. Mednarodnega filozofskega simpozija Miklavža Ocepka, ki je bil tokrat v največji meri posvečen prav spominu tega mnogo prezgodaj umrlega slovenskega filozofa, ki je bil duša filozofskih dogajanj okrog našega društva. Leta 2015 je namreč minevalo deset let, odkar nas je ‚naš‘ Miklavž (1963–2005) zapustil. To je že deveti zbornik mednarodnih filozofskih srečanj založbe KUD Apokalipsa (peti inštituta SERISK (z angleško kratico CERI-SK) Ljubljana), saj od leta 2013 organiziramo vsako leto bodisi simpozije ali konference in delavnice, v letu 2018 pa izide tako slovenski kot angleški zbornik pod osrednjim imenom »Kierkegaard«. Pod tem imenom je pričujoči zbornik že peti. Tudi simpozij 2015 je, tako kot prejšnji 2013, potekal pod častnim pokroviteljstvom predsednika Republike Slovenije g. Boruta Pahorja.

Pričujoči zbornik, tako kot vsi po letu 2013, prinaša bogato spremljevalno gradivo, tokrat je to galerija portretov filozofov in drugih udeležencev simpozija, ki jo je »zakrivil« član fotografske sekcije Srednjeevropskega raziskovalnega inštituta Soeren Kierkegaard Ljubljana Jože Suhadolnik, pa tudi že tradicionalna fotografska reportaža. Sicer nam pred nami razprostrta knjiga prinaša petintrideset različnih esejev in študij, omizje, pa tudi slavnostne in otvoritvene nagovore ter uvodni nagovor avtorja ob otvoritvi razstave Koliko je ena? slikarja Ignaca Medena.

Ethical AspectsIt seems that there is a consensus in the scientific community that the mentioned problems are not sporadic and the cases that become visible can represent just the tip of iceberg. It is for this reason that the development of ethical studies needs adequate support and prioritizing.”
