The motive of sport in Robert Musil's literary work (Aesthetic aspect)
Šafrová, Kateřina ; Hlobil, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kaplický, Martin (referee)
This thesis investigates the motive of sport and physicality in the literary work of Robert Musil, especially its philosophical and aesthetic aspect. The aim of the first part is to capture the existing knowledge on this subject in the secondary literature. Based on these findings the second part of this work develops a hypothesis by Hanns- Marcus Müller on the context of the concepts of physicality and sport by Friedrich Nietzsche and Robert Musil. My bachelor thesis concludes with a comprehensive concept of sport in Robert Musil's thinking, which refutes the view of apparent internal inconsistencies of Musil's claims, currently prevailing in the expert community.
Bergson's conception of art
Chalupa, Marek ; Ševčík, Miloš (advisor) ; Kaplický, Martin (referee)
- Marek Chalupa: Bergson's Conception of Art The study aims to present Henri Bergson's opinions concerning art. According to Bergson, art is able to "suggest" an individual moment of "duration" of feelings, emotions and "external" things. An artist perceives things in their "deep" quality and forms the elements of his work in a way to put the recipient right "inside" the experience of "pure perception". An artwork can even become a reference to the universal principle of the continual change of the world in general. The study summarises Bergson's fundamental theses about art as presented in particular works of this author and describes the development of the whole Bergson's conception of art (based on a level of extension of the concept of "duration"). Moreover, the study deals with several problematic points of this conception (the "perfect" "suggestion", the implicit art hierarchy and the nature of the "aesthetic experience") including Bergson's specific concentration on the question of the "artistic truth".

A role of empathy in the reception of film work of art
Csicsely, Lukáš ; Zuska, Vlastimil (advisor) ; Kaplický, Martin (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the subject of empathy in the reception of film work of art and the distinction of empathy and the terms which are being generally confused with it (such as identification and sympathy) in a representative selection of texts on both psychoanalysis and film cognitivism. Bela Buda's writing serves as a background for those works. The first two parts are dealing with the definition of Buda's empathy and its differentiation from sympathy, identification and projection in the context of the reception of film work of art with emphasis on psychical distance. The following part is focused on the comparison of various concepts of authors from the field of psychoanalysis (Mulvay and Metz) and film cognitivism (Carroll, Neill, Grodal, Smith). This part works with the findings of the previous parts.
The Environmental Aesthetics of Arnold Berleant
Lahovská, Kristýna ; Dadejík, Ondřej (advisor) ; Kaplický, Martin (referee)
The aim of this dissertation is focusing on environmental aesthetics of Arnold Berleant. Firstly we concentrated on his theoretical aesthetics opinions and then we passed to use them on field of environmental aesthetics. To draw a comparison we used writings of another American aesthetician, Allen Carlson. In sphere of Berleant's theoretical aesthetics opinions it is not possible to omit concepts of aesthetical experience, value and social factor. These points are important ideas of aesthetics of engagement, which we would like to present. As useful for environmental aesthetics we also see Berleant evaluation of negative and positive aesthetics values. In case of Allen Carlson we use several models in the field of theoretical aesthetics. The author assessments the functionality of these models for environmental aesthetics. The last point of this dissertation is focusing on a certain type of environment, to architecture and "Disney World", respective. In this field we wanted to demonstrate how the Berleant works with certain type of environment. Allen Carlson chooses as certain type of environment American farms. He concentrates on point how these farms have changed during one century. KEYWORDS: Arnold Berleant, Allen Carlson, environmental aesthetics, aesthetics value, aesthetics experience
The chapter on dramatic poetry in the first and second edition of Josef Jungmann's Slovesnost
Fleyberková, Klára ; Hlobil, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kaplický, Martin (referee)
This thesis deals with the chapter about dramatic poetry in the first and second edition of Jungmann's "Slovesnost". Its aim is to outline the author's dramatic approach, cover the changes that occurred in the second edition in comparison to the first one, and show Jungmann's work with aesthetic notions, using examples. First of all, we described a formal set-out of the chapter and its place within the whole "Slovesnost", and then we concentrated on individual genres and their modifications in either edition. Finally, we focused on aesthetic motives which occur in the chapter. Our thesis proves that Jungmann's thinking dramatically changed and modernised within a quarter of a century. He stopped using primarily Czech expressions, which was the case in 1820, and yielded to ever more often used international words in a way, which led to his moderation in terms of Czech Revivalism. The case of the key term "estetický" ("aesthetic") was similar - the author mentioned it only in 1845 instead of the original "krasovědný" (a truly Czech word with the same meaning), and using it enabled him to rebuild the aesthetic system by creating the so-called "nonaesthetic feelings". Modernising the theory was also mirrored in the fact that the author no longer emphasised ethical moments. In the second edition, he concentrated...
Pragmatic moments in the dissertation of Karel Čapek
Váchová, Michaela ; Dadejík, Ondřej (advisor) ; Kaplický, Martin (referee)
Karel Čapek is known as a pragmatist of the Czech philosophical background. The truth is that the pragmatism had in the Czech philosophical background several idealistic followers in the 1st middle of the 20th century (Emanuel Rádl, Karel Vorovka, T. G. Masaryk). However the majority of them desinterpreted the idea of American pragmatism and they just proceeded via this philosophical tendence to the another one. My thesis deals with pragmatic moments in the Aesthetics of Karel Čapek because he finished his studies by the dissertation Objective Method in the Aesthetics regarding visual arts. Through the comparison with John Dewey's Art as Experience it's clear there's a pragmatic inspiration in the aesthetics too. However it is possible to speak just about the pragmatic moments, not about the pragmatic aesthetics.

Kitsch and Theatre
Haplová, Barbora ; KAPLICKÝ, Martin (advisor) ; ETLÍK, Jaroslav (referee)
This bachelor thesis tries to capture the general characterics of kitsch. It attempts to find these characterics in a particular theatre production. In terms of general principles of kitsch I am trying to show how kitsch can become a subject of a theatre production. In the first theoretical part I worked mainly with Kitsch and Art, a book by Tomáš Kulka, and with various texts by Jan Mukařovský, Umberto Eco, Milan Kundera, Ludwig Giesz, Matei Calinescu, Václav Černý etc. The theoretical part analyses Petr Kolečko's play Buchty a bohyně directed by Jan Frič and Lukas Bärfuss' play Dvacet tisíc stránek directed by Zuzana Burianová, both final productions of graduating students under the Department of Dramatic Theatre DAMU. The main aim of this bachelor thesis is to focus on the principles of kitsch in connection with the youngest generation of theatre artists. I am trying to apply general esthetical theory on particular theatre productions. In the analytical part I am working mainly with these productions, with a Czech play Buchty a bohyně and a Swiss play Twenty thousand pages translated by Magdalena Štulcová and adapted by Helena Kebrtová and Zuzana Burianová.
