Balakleets N.A. Body, Power and Transgression: Ernst Kapp’s Ñoncept of Organ Projection and its Modern Receptions

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2015-6 in rubric "Social dynamics", pages 866-874.

Resume: The subject of this paper is to study the concept of organ projection presented in Ernst Kapp’s “Principles of a philosophy of technology”, the book that has never been fully translated into Russian. The author of the article examines the foundations of Ernst Kapp’s concepts from the point of view of socio-cultural and technological dynamics of the modern society and pays particular attention to the phenomena of the body, power and transgression. Using the receptions of the idea of the organ projection presented in the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Pavel Florensky, Ernst Cassirer and Marshal McLuhan, the author explicates its heuristic potential and significance for contemporary philosophy and culture. Along with the general scientific research methodology the author also uses dialectical, hermeneutic, psychoanalytic methods and the method of the comparative analysis of philosophical doctrines. The novelty of the research lies in the interpretation of organ projection as a transgressive process that leads to the blurring of the boundaries between the inside and the outside. Ernst Kapp’s concept of organ projection implicitly contains the ontology of transgression which will be developed further in the non-classical philosophy. As a result of transgression, the borders of human body expand beyond their own limits and extend its power to the external space, assimilating and absorbing it. The special contribution of the author consists in explication of the characteristics of the phenomenon of the body represented in the organ projection concept, in particular its gender characteristics.

Keywords: social space, human, modern society, technique, border, Kapp, organ projection, transgression, power, body
