Konvalinková, Karolína ; Nykl, Hanuš (advisor) ; Hašková, Dana (referee)
The thesis deals with an important chapter of the history of the Russian interwar emigration in Czechoslovakia represented by the activities of Plamja publishing house. The publishing house belonged to the pivotal Russian exile institutions and its role is the key to understanding the Russian exile publishing houses in Czechoslovakia. The operation of the publishing house has been so far described only in the form of a review, detailed information and critical analysis is missing. The latter cannot be satisfyingly done without a breakdown of the role of its leading personality - Jevgenij Alexandrovič Ljackij, professor at the Charles University in Prague. Ljackij stood at its birth, he directed it throughout the active phase and created connections with several authors. The publishing house was highly productive in the first years of its existence and consequently got indebted, so its activity in the following years stagnated.

Thanks to all the archive materials mentioned above, new yet unpublished data and facts about the establishment and activities...
Between Fact and Fiction: On the Documentary Devices in Selected Works by Ales Adamovich
Koliášová, Jana ; Kosáková, Hana (advisor) ; Nykl, Hanuš (referee)
The thesis focuses on mutual blending of the factual and the fictional writing in the work of a Belarusian author Ales Adamovich. Regarding the choice of the analyzed works, two of them (Out of the Fire, 1975; Leningrad Under Siege, 1981) are identified as documentaries in the paratexts. These two works consist of recorded oral testimonies. The other two analyzed works (Khatyn, 1972, The Chasteners, 1981) are fictions, incorporating, however, several authentic documents. Using these works as examples, the thesis illustrates how the (hypothetical) borders between the fact and fiction are blurred and trespassed. The first, literary-historical part will briefly summarize the main concepts of the relationship between art and reality in the Soviet area, beginning with the Formalists and their interest in genre innovations, and concluding with an accent on the individual reader reception of Lidiya Ginzburg and Pyotr Palievsky. The plural aspect is implicitly reflected also in the second part of the thesis, focusing on Adamovich's thinking about the notion of truthfulness in literature. At this point, there is also a related theme of the impact of the genre tradition on the reception of the text. Also in the author's view, the role of the reader seems to be crucial. In the description of the receptive...

The historical and archaeological importance of travel accounts made by Russian pilgrims to the Near East from the 12th to 19th centuries.
Ježek, Václav ; Tumis, Stanislav (advisor) ; Boček, Pavel (referee) ; Nykl, Hanuš (referee)
This work deals with a theme, which is increasingly becoming popular amongst scholars. It is a theme dealing with Russian pilgrims and travellers, who visited the areas of the Middle East, especially those places, such as Constantinople, the Holy Land, Mt. Athos and others. Under the designation Russian pilgrims we do not mean individuals belonging to a specific ethnic group, but individuals who were related to Russia understood as a political formation and state. The contacts between the south and Russia, have important consequences for the development of Russia itself, its culture, identity and history. This is also the case for the Middle East, where the contacts with Russia determined to a large extent the development and character of this area. The Russian contacts with the south should be primarily viewed in terms of the Byzantine-Russian context. These were based on cultural influences and on a shared faith and identity. The cultural and religious contacts were enabled by travelling individuals, who travelled without and with a specific goal. In the context of these journeys the prime motivation was a religious one, when a pilgrimage to such areas as Constantinople, Mt. Athos, the Holy Land, helped to build a religious identity in Russia, since before the fall of Constantinople, religion...

«Little Man» Characters in the Work of Nikolai Gogol and Andrei Platonov
Yakubenkova, Yulia ; Nykl, Hanuš (advisor) ; Kosáková, Hana (referee)
and key words This bachelor thesis is an attempt at a detailed analysis of the term «little man». The first chapter includes coherent reviewing of different aspects of general formulation of the term. The second chapter is dedicated to the characters of so-called Petersburg Tales by Nikolai Gogol, as they are the most representative examples of the «little man» type. The third chapter examines the characters of Andrei Platonov's work, compares them with Nikolai Gogol's characters and takes a stand against interpreting Platonov's characters as «little men». The analysis is primarily based on secondary sources, because the term «little man» itself is an abstraction, used mainly in literary criticism, thus, implementation of an analysis using primary literature only seems to be impossible. Key words: Russian literature, little man, Nikolai Gogol, Andrei Platonov

Zemánek, Ladislav ; Nykl, Hanuš (advisor) ; Kosáková, Hana (referee)
The thesis is concerned with theoretical work of the Russian legal philosopher P. I. Novgorodtsev, focusing on the concepts of natural law, social ideal, individualism, liberalism, rule of law and democracy. Novgorodtsev's interpretation of these concepts is embedded into broader contexts of both Russian and Western political philosophy and philosophy of law. Novgorodtsev's work is analysed with regards to Russian liberal doctrine transformations from classical liberalism towards liberal socialism. The thesis discloses progressive moments in the author's thought demonstrating ways as to develop them. Problems in question are inquired into through the prism of A. Honneth's critical theory of society which enables to approach the subject matter in its historical variability and conditionality and, at the same time, maintaining normativity. The aim of the thesis is not only to assess Novgorodtsev's work topicality and contribution but also critically research into relevant problems in terms of the chosen topic, primarily metaphysical roots of liberalism and its limits as to the notion of man, state and law. The thesis shows that the Russian philosopher offered reformulations of old concepts not being able, however, to go beyond the liberal paradigm. Hence his texts cannot be utilized for overcoming...
