Rozkład świata na miarę człowieka: współczesność z perspektywy słoweńskiego dramatopisarstwa

Title variants
The layout of the world tailored to the human. Contemporary world in Slovenian drama
Languages of publication
This paper deals with the present-day Slovenian dramatic works facing the challenges of the contemporary world on the one hand and the consequent changes our society has been subject to on the other. Particular attention is paid to three main topics: discarded human beings (or G. Agamben’s homines sacri), globalization or, in other words, “liquidity” of the modern world (cf. Z. Bauman’s (in)famous definition), and the devolution of both Christian as well as Enlightenment values and norms. By way of an in-depth analysis, the paper will bring into picture sociological, anthropological, political, economic and other perspectives in the newest Slovenian drama. The paper’s central argument will be the present-day emptiness of norms such as the Decalogue or Kant’s categorical imperative. Such an up-to-date account of the dramatic endeavours in Slovenia necessarily paints a rather morbid picture of our contemporary world.
