Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course is dedicated to the analysis of some aspects of contemporary social, political, economic, and spiritual reality seen through the so called rhetoric of the sublime. Different types of the sublime have been used in fine arts and literature to describe industrialization, urbanization, “technologization”, changes of mentality, changes of social, political, and human relations, and ways of their “sacralization” as well as deconstructive criticism. The aim of the course is to present what the reason of the “long life” of the category of the sublime is: on the one hand - methods of creating new myths (national, regional) and symbols, and its “cultural transfer” from modern culture (i.e. the turn of the 20th century) to our contemporary culture; on the other – ways of its deconstruction in literary works, painting, and photography of the same period. The following problems will be analyzed: technological sublime, urban sublime (American, Russian, Asian versions of the technological and urban sublime) as well as some aspects of theological (Radical), postmodern, psychological, political, new spirituality, and cyber sublime.
