Zdravlje nije sve

Pre nekih nedelju dana napravili smo poster sa Šopenhaureovim citatom. Lep poster, popularni citat, stvoreno za lajkove. Naravno i da mi volimo kad se drugima svidi (i koristi) ono što pišemo. Ali lajkovi nam nikada nisu niti će biti cilj sam po sebi.


U trenutku kad smo hteli podeliti poster, stavili smo prst na čelo i razmislili. Čekaj, ali iako ovo instinktivno zvuči super, ovo ne samo da nije tačno, nego nije ni korisno ni etično promovisati ovako nešto.


Zašto nije korisno? Zbog zdravih… Jer ako smatramo zdravlje za nužan deo smislenog življenja, u slučaju da se razbolimo (a većina nas hoće u jednom trenutku) onda život više nema smisla?


Zašto nije etično? Zbog bolesnih… Veliki procenat populacije ima jednu ili više hroničnih bolesti. Ako zdravlje smatramo za nužan uslov dobrog življenja onda nipodaštavamo njihove živote.


Potrudili smo se da ne detaljišemo, već da iznesemo donekle srž problema sa redukcionistički obrazloženjem, a koji sami možete dalje da razvijate ako želite. Za kraj smo dodali pasuse iz čuvene knjige psihijatra V. Frankla Man’s Search for Meaning (srp. Zašto se niste ubili):

[pp 111-115] We can discover this meaning of life in three different ways: (1) by creating a work or doing a deed; (2) by experiencing something or encountering someone; and (3) by the attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering. The first, by way of achievement or accomplishment, is quite obvious. The second and third need further elaboration.


The Meaning of Suffering

We must never forget that we may also find meaning in life even when confronted with a hopeless situation, when facing a fate that cannot be changed. For what then matters is to bear witness to the uniquely human potential at its best, which is to transform a personal tragedy into triumph, to turn one’s predicament into a human achievement. When we are no longer able to change a situation–just think of an incurable disease such as inoperable cancer–we are challenged to change ourselves…


But let me make it perfectly clear that in no way is suffering necessary to find meaning. I only insist that meaning is possible even in spite of suffering–provided, certainly, that the suffering is unavoidable. If it were avoidable, however, the meaningful thing to do would be to remove its cause, be it psychological, biological or political…


There are situations in which one is cut off from the opportunity to do one’s work or enjoy one’s life; but what can never be ruled out is the unavoidability of suffering. In accepting this challenge to suffer bravely, life has a meaning up to the last moment, and it retains this meaning literally to the end. In other words, life’s meaning is an unconditional one, for it even includes the potential meaning of unavoidable suffering…

[In Auschwitz] the question that beset me was, “Has all this suffering, all this dying around us, a meaning? For, if not, then ultimately there is no meaning to survival; for a life whose meaning depends on such a happenstance–as whether one escapes or not–ultimately would not be worth living at all.”
