Release Year: 2014

Essays by the leading Czech philosopher Miroslav Petříček on the history of philosophy, illustrated by the works of the Slovak painter Rudolf Fila. Dialogue of word and image, narrative and visible, linguistic reference and artistic representation, discourse and figure. Will the book, which is supposed to be a space for their confrontation, withstand the tension that has arisen? As Peter Michalovič writes in the preface of the book: “Look at Fill's pictures, read Petříček's texts and, above all, connect one with the other. If you can do that, you will get guidance that not only teaches but also provides joy. ”
