All civilizations have cultivated some kind of ars vivendi, and also our
own (present) is no exception. At one hand the present society more deeply
than ever interferes with secrets of life. Yet at the other hand, there
are signs of non-mastering the life, the escape in the opposite direction,
to non-life. There are even sings of turning to death. The former Pope
John Paul II spoke about our culture as a culture of death. How can we
consider the art of life as a challenge for solving difficult problems of
man’s life in the time being? We offer a scientific contribution (provided
by scholars cultivating several scientific approaches and disciplines) to
multilayered background from which alone the genuine sense of proper
attitude toward them can grow.
