ART AND POLITICS: WILD FIELD
Urszula Benka describes Russian interference in publishing Polish poetry in the seventeenth century. What are the criteria for censorship? What is work of art from the point of view of a censor? The futility of censorship as a reversal of art-promoting. Distrust of censored culture is connected with promoting myths and with ignorance. If someone considers politics as manifestations of spiritual culture, and if he/she considers its legal and military language in the context of sacral-psychological phenomena, the same person must also consider the process of producing myths in the context of social pathology.
