Niklas Forsberg, Ulrika Björk (eds.): The Dissident
Mimořádné číslo Filosofického časopisu 1/2022
This special issue is devoted to rereading and reassessing Václav Havel’s seminal essay “The Power of the Powerless”, in the light of the present day culture and ethico-political scene. The Chartist efforts to pursue a non-political politics, lead us to reflect upon power relations and pre-political textures, where existential, political and ethical concerns are allowed to come forth as intermingled, not only with each other but also with questions about language, symbolism and truth. The papers collected here are investigations into how these forms of interconnection and intertwining between ethics, existential concerns, authenticity, language, meaning and truth look.
