Madonna in the rocks by Leonardo da Vinci. The image of bold, overhanging and threatening rocks in Kant´s Critique of Judgement, a work otherwise scarce on parables or examples. The rock landscape as a setting to the romantic novel by the Czech classic writer Karel Hynek Mácha The Gipsies. The setting of the final scene of Witold Gombrowicz´s novel The Cosmos in a mountain valley rimmed by rocks. The frequency of the motive of rocks in tramps´ and bluegrass songs. And the unabating frequency of visitors to the rock labyrinths of Teplice and Adršpach during the past two centuries. All this causes amazement, the philosophical thaumazein. What is the source of our fascination with the rocks, what attracts us to this place?
Scholars in geomancy believe that inanimate nature is bundled with the animate one including our knowledge capacities in mysterious metaphysical bonds. I can´t exlude it. For me, however, has the fascination with the rugged rock landscape its roots in the Enlightment, Pre-Romanticism and Romanticism. It was Immanuel Kant who stood at the beginning of the romantic return to the nature as he divined and argued that neither mere analytical, nor practical (including ethical) thinking suffice to get a full grasp of phenomena of animate and inanimate nature. The humans are endued with yet another, third kind of cognitive capacity, called judgement, which enables us to cognize natural phenomena through the prism of the relationship between purpose and means. And to this capacity everything in the nature appears as a purpose and a means at one time.
Rocks as a means to our amazement as well as a purpose at its own. As we humans ourselves. By the way, sandstone rocks, more than other kinds of rocks, undergo changes with the passage of time until their final decline through erosion. As we humans ourselves. This does not mean that their ephemeral beauty is not a purpose for itself. We wish to stop the beauty for a while and someone might exclaim together with Goethe:
„If ever I to the moment shall say:
Beautiful moment, do not pass away!
Then you may forge your chains to bind me,
Then I will put my life behind me!“
We shall be glad if on such occasion you will make a stop at our Adršpach hotel.
