Censurováno (Censored), the 15th VHL Notebook, contains a series of letters written by Zdeněk Neubauer, undoubtedly one of the most distinctive and original of Czech contemporary thinkers, to his brother-in-law Václav Benda in prison between 1980 and 1983.

Readers familiar with Neubauer’s philosophical works published since the 1990s have a unique opportunity to encounter in a rough, rudimentary form the particular “world of Neubauer”. Some revere and admire Neubauer’s reflections, opinions and analyses at the intersection of science, philosophy and religion, while others just as passionately criticise, reject and even condemn them. The letters offer readers the opportunity to consider matters beyond the crucible of modern rationality: ideas, metaphors, symbols, images and archetypes; myths and legends; ontological experiences revealing the internal and therefore subjective nature of reality itself; and nature and our human, original sin burdened by nature. They are invited into the philosophical world of an exceptionally erudite person and all the possible secrets and encounters with which he shaped the course of the history of Western civilisation, blessed but simultaneously not bound by any strict “scientific” method. (From Martin Palouš’s foreword).
