Knowledge in the shadow of catastrophe: Key thinkers of polish humanities in the post-war era

Domańska, Ewa
Filipkowski, Piotr
Małczyński, Jacek
Nader, Luiza
The volume offers the profound insights of the World War II generation with this extraordinary survey of Polish postwar humanities. The reader will encounter essays penned by eighteen luminous minds, including Bronisław Baczko, Michał Głowiński, Oskar Hansen, Maria Janion, Anna Pawełczyńska, Krzysztof Pomian, Władysław Strzemiński, and more. Their texts are canonical in disciplines such as art history, cultural studies, history, literary criticism, philosophy, and sociology. The book allows to dive into the depths of memory and mnemonic experience, exploring the multifaceted tapestry of human existence—its historical, political, public, private, and often traumatic dimensions. Traverse the realms of material and visual cultures, and embrace the self-deconstructive and self-critical gestures that electrify intellectual pursuits. The book offers a powerful dose of academic reflection that will leave you profoundly engaged and will resonate long after you turn the final page.

Multiple aspects of brain functioning, including arousal, motivation, and cognitive performance, are governed by circadian rhythmicity. Although the recent rise in the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has enabled investigations into the macroscopic correlates of the diurnal brain processes, neuroanatomical studies are scarce. The current work investigated how time-of-day (TOD) impacts white (WM) and grey matter (GM) volumes using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) in a large dataset (N = 72) divided into two equal, comparable subsamples to assess the replicability of effects. Furthermore, we aimed to assess how the magnitude of these diurnal differences was related to actigraphy-derived indices of sleep health. The results extend the current knowledge by reporting that TOD is predominantly associated with regional WM volume decreases. Additionally, alongside corroborating previously observed volumetric GM decreases, we provide the first evidence for positive TOD effects. Higher replicability was observed for WM, with the only two replicated GM clusters being volumetric increases in the amygdala and hippocampus, and decreases in the retro-splenial cortex, with the latter more pronounced in individuals with shorter sleep times. These findings implicate the existence of region-specific mechanisms behind GM effects, which might be related to cognitive processes taking place during wakefulness and homeostatic sleep pressure.

Zasada in dubio pro tributario na przykładzie orzecznictwa sądów administracyjnych w sprawie opodatkowania zbycia nieruchomości poza działalnością gospodarczą

Celem niniejszego artykułu jest analiza orzecznictwa sądów administracyjnych w przedmiocie opodatkowania zbycia nieruchomości poza działalnością gospodarczą. Autorka rozważa w nim, czy w ramach orzeczeń dotyczących tego zagadnienia szerzej jest postrzegana zasada rozstrzygania wątpliwości na korzyść podatnika, a jeżeli taka interpretacja jest prezentowana – jakie są jej przyczyny.

Losing our heads: Expanded cinema and unreason between Javier Téllez and Carl Theodor Dreyer

Recent decades have seen the rise of film installation as a consequence of cinema’s displacement in the digital age. This expansion of film exhibition to the gallery has given rise to what Raymond Bellour terms an other cinema, or a cinematic praxis that opens new possibilities for the theorization of the moving image, its history, and its relation to other disciplines. In a cinematic landscape marked by intermediality and transnationality, expanded cinema offers a path forward for filmmakers and moving-image artists in and from Latin America. In this article, I study the relation between cinema and madness in Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 film La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc and the 2004 film installation La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc (Rozelle Hospital) by Venezuelan artist Javier Téllez. I argue that through his citation of Dreyer’s signature close-ups, his direct intervention in the original work, and his staging of projection, Téllez theorizes the relation between spectatorship and an embodied unreason by enacting a mimetic encounter between the audience and the mentally ill. Téllez embraces the legacy of avant-garde cinema, which sought to highlight film’s ability to suspend a cognitively oriented perception. By experimenting with the material basis of exhibition, Rozelle Hospital imagines a new audiovisual politics that stages an ethical encounter with the mentally ill through an embodied spectatorship.
