Aesthetic and philosophical aspect of human interaction with the sea

  • Тетяна Житомирська


The aesthetic-philosophical aspect of the "man-sea" interaction is considered at the level of understanding the coexistence of an individual with the sea (the world ocean), separating the state of being-in-water from the state of being-in-the-world, through the perception of the images of the works of artists of the marine direction. The effectiveness and safety of this interaction requires the coordination of anthropocentric and biocentric approaches to activity, which is a manifestation of adaptive processes. Equally important is the choice of a suitable situation for the type of human interaction with the sea: the development of industry, energy, transport and an anthropocentric approach to environmental protection have led to complex and extremely unfavorable conditions for the life of both humans and marine complexes, which are necessary for the preservation of vital processes certain adaptation.

It is noted that the philosophical understanding of the spectrum of problems of human interaction with the sea requires the liberation of our thinking from old stereotypes and dogmas, the use of new approaches in the philosophical analysis of this interaction, new worldview paradigms. It is shown that the modern philosophy of marine art reflects a general willingness to rethink human conditions in terms of the sea, considering the multifacetedness of mutually conditioned existence from the encounter with the immanence of ecological decay to the interaction between moving bodies and liquid environ. This inevitably causes the manifestation of adaptive mutual adjustment.

The study emphasizes that the source and beginning of artistic creativity is an experience (feeling or emotion) of such power that it stuns the entire soul of the artist and leaves a deep mark in his memory. It haunts him until he finds a means of self-expression that will allow him to achieve emotional relief and release himself from this feeling. Various aspects of ideals, values, beliefs can be seen in works of art: moral, political, religious or atheistic, philosophical, aesthetic, which requires mutual agreement through mutual adjustment.

Modern artists, proposing the relationship between people and the sea inside and outside, between people and the ocean, remind us that the first step to eliminating the imbalance in the world is the need to unite with the world and the need to feel one with the ocean, to move away from consumerism to the oceans and seas, which destroys the ecosystem of the entire planet. Such relationships are established through mutual adaptation.

Keywords: philosophy of interaction between man and nature; understanding the role of the biosphere; human interaction with the sea; philosophy of marine painting, adaptability, mutual adaptation.
