Philosophy course with Lubica Ucník of the School of Critical Arts
Given that modern thought has renounced the privileged position of God, and/or the Cosmos, as the explanatory horizon within which we make sense of our lives, Science seems to be the only criterion of our reality. Wonder and awe-inspiring nature becomes a collection of things that modern science can explain within its mathematical-scientific formula. In our technologically globalised world, the ancient question of the meaning of life becomes meaningless. Transcendence no longer conditions our lives. Rather, we are concerned with our finite individual projects, channelling our energies towards a greater accumulation of material possessions that are the only measure of our success in life. In this unit, we will attempt to think over the ancient question of the meaning of life. Is it possible to think about “the meaning of life” in our modern techno-scientific world?
