Neprirodzená prirodzenosť

Jana Sošková


The background of the author’s thoughts is a radical critique of art and science by J. J. Rousseau and genuine aesthetic and moral disposition of a human being outlined by I. Kant in his pre-critic works. According to the author, the art of twentieth century reveals (comments, extremely magnifies, contemplates, designates, creates metaphors, asks the questions) problems of a “nature of a contemporary man”. The author illustrates possible consequences of Rousseau’s critique of an art and science in the present and the shifts of natural aesthetic dispositions, as named by Kant in the contemporary art.
