Monika Błaszczak, „Amorficzne kategorie estetyczne wobec teorii poznania”

 

 

The book entitled Amorphous aesthetic categories in relation to the theory of knowledge is a proposal to look at contemporary, 20th and 21st century cultural texts from a broad transdisciplinary perspective. The search for a new language of description, analysis and interpretation of phenomena in the humanities is carried out by the author "across", in the "entanglement" of various fields and disciplines. The difficulty in finding the correct language of theory is, of course, no discovery. However, the very search and attempt to find a language "between" discourses seems to be a new quality. The author uses her extensive scientific background - primarily literary studies, as well as theater and cultural studies - referring to examples from the field of literature, theater, performance, performing and visual arts. The role of the researcher, creator and recipient, as well as the work itself, called an event, practice, process, experience, is reinterpreted. It is the aesthetic experience that constitutes the main axis of the conducted considerations. The main direction of interest in this work concerns the transfer of concepts from science to art and to the literary area, and art is treated as a theory of cognition. The analyzed aesthetic categories are: flowability, transparency, fluidity, roughness/roughness, viscosity, tastie(ness) and smell, as well as roughness, noise and bustle. The titular amorphism refers both to the analyzed aesthetic categories as well as to the construction of the entire book and the way of writing. Amorphousness - shapelessness, as well as polymorphism - polymorphism are two important concepts, the use of which in this dissertation oscillates between a literal approach, starting from what is physical, and a metaphorical one.
