Cunning Tricks in Greek Religious Thought
Procházková, Helena ; Chlup, Radek (advisor) ; Kozák, Jan (referee)
The aim of the present thesis is to introduce different types of cunning intelligence in Greek mythology and their role in the broader context of Greek thought. The subject matter is explored using representative mythic figures and situations. The pivotal problem is the relationship between cunning tricks and both cultural and divine order. The first part is concerned with greek expressions connected to cunning tricks and their possible meanings. The subsequent section deals with the forms of cunning as they can be seen in the charecters of Hermes and Odysseus and considers the way in which cunning tricks can be beneficial to order. A comparison with other cunning characters and myths of origins of rituals follow in the final chapter. It concludes with determining in which context a cunning trick is acceptable. In conclusion it is argued that cunning intelligence bears a culturally constitutive function and may even be beneficial in existing order. However, its positive role is manifested maily in the primordial state of the universe when cultural order is not clearly delimited. Cunning intelligence always remains ambivalent and a paradox. Its ambiguity is most apparent in clearly defined and structured cultural order.
Application of new legislation on the labeling of food products into the Czech Republic
Labels used on refreshments provide consumers simple, comprehensible and consistent information about packaged foods and enables them to make wiser choices. Food packages contain a link between agricultural commodities and consumable forms of food known to consumers. Labels act as a silent selling point through distinctive brands since it help the customers choose between products and keep a check on the amount of foods they are eating that are high in fat, salt and added sugars for example. Secondly, it facilitates the identification in the barcode system. The aim of this work is to compare refreshments from different sectors of the food industry from the view point of current legislation in European Union and Czech Republic. The comparison was carried out by selecting refreshments sold in Czech Republic compared to Belgium. On the basis of information gathered from the labels and questionnaire we can assess the importance of labeling when packaging products for consumer. Some local differences were recorded, eg in the case of minced meat sold in Belgium there were 4 certification logos; in the Czech Republic, on the other hand, the meat content of ham or packaged salami was stated. The questionnaire survey showed that consumers mostly follow the information on the labels, differently when buying food and monitoring the information on the labels by women and men, the age and education of respondents, and the nationality in this case almost does not matter. The results show that food packaging and labeling information needs to be given much higher attention from both parties consumers and manufacturers.
