Belief in Free Will and College Students
Noskovič, Marek ; Kučera, Miloš (advisor) ; Klusák, Miroslav (referee)
Is free will simply an illusion? Or is it justifiable that we have built on free will our whole human society, including the legal system? For several centuries, there has been a debate in philosophical and theological circles about whether there is a free will or, on the contrary, our life is determined from the very beginning. I would like to contribute to better understanding of free will through my Bachelor Thesis, especially from the point of view of the latest knowledge in psychology. Including history, various philosophical and theological conceptions of this phenomenon, I will deal with an influence of faith in free will on our psyche and happiness in life. With a questionnaire of Free Will and eterminism (FAD Plus), I will examine how faith in free will or determinism affects school success of college students. Keywords Free will, determinism, fatalism, unpredictibility, psychology, college students, belief, grades
The perception of Classical music by her performers.
Kůdelová, Anna ; Kučera, Miloš (advisor) ; Nedělka, Michal (referee)
This thesis explores experiences of professional, classical musicians who perform music on daily basis. The main observation is whether listening to music creates a synesthesia within this very specific group. Synesthesia is a condition in which one perception (a trigger or inducer) involutarily triggers another (concurrent) experience. To fully contain this idea, multiple individuals, un-experienced with classical music were adressed as well. The main purpose of this thesis is an identification and separation of abstract notions of musicians and an actual musically-induced synesthesia. Methodology, data collection, exploratory specimen and a way how the research was conducted are decribed in the practical part of the thesis. Collected data were then analyzed in respective categories. Theoretical part researches the different musical experiences, the synesthetic phenomena and its effect in musical environment, and an analysis of the musical sample used as a foundation for the practical part. KEYWORDS Synesthesia, music experience, performers of classical music, musician vs. non-musician

Valentová, Hana ; Kučera, Miloš (advisor) ; Vágnerová, Marie (referee) ; Bartošová, Kateřina (referee)
The thesis focuses on posttraumatic growth in adolescents and young adults. The subject of the research is finding and tracking reactions and changes that emerge after a specific stimulus - an existentially experienced trauma, where at the core is realizing the threat of life and afterwards thinking about one's own death. The theoretical part deals with psychological and philosophical sources of current concepts of post-traumatic growth. These sources support our assumption that for the specific course of post-traumatic reactions and changes the subject category or objective severity of events is not relevant. It is the respondents own perception of a life threat. We also deal with a particular PTG model by Tedeschi and Calhoun, whose concept of changes after a major life event was chosen as the starting point for our research and whose PTGI questionnaire is used in the quantitative part. In the empirical part we chose mixed research design. First, a quantitative part of the research was carried out, involving 407 respondents aged 17-25. The aim of this part was to determine the rate of post-traumatic growth and to demonstrate that perceived life threats occur among respondents across all event categories. The personal perception of a life threat will result into a higher score achieved in both...
Self-knowledge in art expression
Šimánková, Kateřina ; Kučera, Miloš (referee)
This qualitative thesis deals with self-knowledge in art expression. The work examines how the creator understands to his or her art product, what happens in the dialogue over the product and how this understanding impacts self-knowledge and self-transformation. The work represents the principle of expression and expressiveness as a phenomenon and mandala as a specific instrument of art expression, which is set into a professional framework through its origin and tradition of use in therapeutic practice. The work is dedicated to the process in which the meaning is explored and constitutes three stages - expression, reflection and analysis. Theory of expression, dynamic art therapy and hermeneutic approach are presented as three basic theoretical approaches in this work. The work describes three case reports in a dynamic process and interprets them through formal and thematic analysis, or more precisely it shows which strategies are used to find the meaning in picture and what is the character of the main topics. KEYWORDS Art expression, mandalas, self-knowledge, early adulthood, theory of expression, dynamic art therapy, hermeneutics.
