Philosophical Writings on Art and the Truth
Poláková, Markéta ; Novák, Aleš (advisor) ; Chavalka, Jakub (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to study the subject of art (especially music) and its connection to the truth. The effort is also to determine what is meant by the truth. But all this reveals the real and noble goal of this thesis: to try to capture all the questions that arise in connection with art and the truth and trying to search their proper philosophical answers. All this takes place within Friedrich Nietzsche's early philosophy, with his inspirations: Arthur Schopenhauer (we will touch the influence of Kant's philosophy on Schopenhauer's philosophy, too) and the composer and at certain time Nietzsche's personal friend - Richard Wagner, whose lesser known writings will be also introduced. It turns out that these arising questions touch on such topics as: abstract rationality and language in contrast to artistic creativity and direct experience, subjectivity or objectivity in art, the special nature of philosophy, existential issues, and issues of a higher sense of human life. Key words: music, art, truth, affection, reason, myth, drama, tragedy
Maya Culture in the Perspective of Anthropology of Tourism
Součková, Kristina ; Soukup, Václav (advisor) ; Půtová, Barbora (referee) ; Poláková, Markéta (referee)
My thesis is based on a broader context of theories and categories of tourism and touristic experiences elaborated by authors belonging to a comparatively new subdiscipline of social and cultural anthropology - the anthropology of tourism. I focus on Mexico, the area of my interest and a part of el Mundo Maya (Maya World) through the eyes of tourism categorization of Valene Smith (1989). I specify two distinct (but yet similar) anthropological fields - one being Riviera Maya with fieldwork in Cancún, Tulum and Chichén Itzá and the other one Ruta Maya with fieldwork in San Cristobal de las Casas and the village of Chamula. I focus on the area of a popular beachspot and adjacent Maya ruins as a destination of historical tourism and also on the area of Chiapas highlands with an authentic Maya village which is a popular destination of ethnic or more accurately cultural tourism. My work is about the process of construction of the (English speaking versus Spanish speaking) tourist image of ancient Maya and the Maya of today. The conclusion of my fieldwork helps me illustrate the term monumentalization of the Maya (Canclini, 2005) or inventing the great Maya through touristic artefacts, experience and travellers' guides.

The main topic of Femme Fatale as a Cultural Construct: The Fatal Womanhood Phenomenon in a Historical and Transcultural Perspective is to describe, compare and interpret "femme fatale" in the context of the belly dancer, geisha and salonnière phenomena. The thesis objective, and subsequently its main research question, is to perform a comparative analysis of femme fatale as a unique cultural construct that is projected into various roles of a woman in an original manner.

Among secondary objectives, the thesis intends to take an interdisciplinary stance in order to elaborate the problems of emancipation and sexuality in historical attitudes toward women, and to identify fatal womanhood motives in fine arts. Last, but not least, the plan is to study cultural and aesthetic contribution of women regarded as femmes fatales. The thesis consists of four relatively standalone chapters, each of which take different interdisciplinary angles to analyze the fatal womanhood phenomenon. The first chapter, a historical exposé of the thesis, investigates the femme fatale through the eyes of mythology and religion. The second chapter,...

Trda mark and Brand as a Cultural Phenomenon
Frischmann, Petr ; Mucha, Ivan (advisor) ; Kosek, Jan (referee) ; Poláková, Markéta (referee)
The subject of this thesis is the empirical-theoretical analysis of socio-cultural impact of cultural elements represented by trademarks and brands from the perspective of specific cultural complex. Combination of mentioned cultural elements is examined as participating in creation of relevant symbolic base for human communication in current globalized society having capacity to influence not only consumer decision making process but also general values and cultural patterns. Persuasiveness of this cultural complex is based on the particular cultural environment adapting permanently to its evolution. Brands and trademarks in this form are retrospectively affecting the social environment. High level of efficiency and speed of such processes are currently accelerated by technological development of communication tools supporting acculturation and globalization aspects. Although described processes and relationships are generated primarily in the sphere of consumer decision-making, their real impact on the social groups is significant being relevant element of shaping general social paradigm. Socio-cultural norms are examined as cultural elements playing special role in such processes granting protection to major values shared by social groups and protecting the individual private interest represented...
Paradigm of Czech modern and postmodern feminism in the context of European culture
Fuxová, Bohuslava ; Ferrarová, Eva (referee) ; Poláková, Markéta (referee)
Keywords: feminism, woman, art, history, romantism, literature, women's emancipation movement This study presents an anthropological and historical analysis of the women's movement in Europe and its interaction with and influence over the development of the women's emancipation movement in Bohemia since the romantic period. Specifically, this study focuses on and understands European feminist literary achievements as crucial to instigating and informing the various developmental stages of the emancipation movement in Bohemia. In mapping the features of the Czech women's emancipation movement not only onto major works of European feminism but minor ones as well, this study examines the full range of influence had by feminist writing in the Czech lands, including that of works that have fallen into obscurity. By reconstructing international feminist writing in its historical context, this study is able to identify "lost" texts and consider closely their movement between feminism and romanticism. Against this backdrop, this study brings the individual efforts of both known and relatively unknown feminist pioneers in Bohemia to the fore in an attempt to grant them the public recognition they deserve. Thus, this study traces the currents of global feminism in order to achieve a powerful local effect.
