Linking up my Topics

April 28th, 2013 · No Comments

The red thread through all of my studies, projects and books was from the very beginning the ánthropos, the human. It is illuminated from the positions of Philosophical, Cultural and Biological Anthropology as well as from the Comparative Science of Indo-European Languages. I discovered through my studies of Stoic philosophy what is meant by the universality of human nature and what makes the individuality of a person. The Stoics existed for 600 years and their major topic was “living in harm ony with nature”. Here we also meet the question concerning the human nature, the common ground to human nature as well as what makes individuality. This is the intersection point of Philosophical Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology and of Cultural History in general. In order to gain a more complete picture of the human from the philosophical angel, we further have to take into account those human experiences, which in industrial societies tend to be regarded as exceptional. These experiences are indeed frequently found, as statistics show, in these societies. A related question arises, namely whether or not it is healthy to have such quasi-taboo experiences and in which state of mind they are perceived. Health as a holistic state and process includes physical, psychological and mental wellbeing. So a further topic has emerged, i.e. health protection and promotion in general and also holistic nutrition as its most important factor. In this area the relationship between humans and plants takes the central place. In all my work I basically want to look beyond historical and cultural boundaries. Ultimately the unifying theme of being human is our consciousness, and the challenge is to raise it.
