Publication of the book “Crisis as Danger and Hope: The Ethics of Pandemics, the Rise of Autocracies and the Dream of Autonomy in a Transcultural Perspective”
A new book by Jana S. Rošker entitled "Crisis as Danger and Hope: The Ethics of Pandemics, the Rise of Autocracies and the Dream of Autonomy in a Transcultural Perspective" was published on March 22, 2021, as part of the Studia Humanitatis Asiatica collection.
As the title of this book suggests, the author deals with the issue of global crisis situations through the lens of transcultural studies. The central motif of writing is the desire to be able to extract general and ubiquitous benefits from various culturally conditioned reflections on the crisis and the overlapping methods, procedures and measures for resolving it. The author does not understand the concept of crisis in the orthodox sense of an exclusively difficult and problematic situation. Rather, she stems from the assumption that crisis as a social phenomenon is not always just something negative, but also something that can encourage us to think about our established views of reality, about our daily actions and, above all, about how we see ourselves. and its place in the world.
