The Notion of "Acceptance" in Paul Tillich's American Sermons
Chalupníček, Pavel ; Noble, Ivana (advisor) ; Hošek, Pavel (referee)
This thesis attempts to analyze the way in which German-American theologian Paul Tillich uses the notion of "acceptance" in sermons from his American period. Tillich's theology is distinguished by his search for new terms that, according to his opinion, could better approximate the message of Christianity for contemporary readers. In this search he does not hesitate to use terms from the sphere of philosophy, sociology or psychology. This approach is strongly reflected also in his sermons and his use of "acceptance" was selected as its model example: Tillich uses "acceptance" to approximate traditional Lutheran teaching on justification by God's grace (sola gratia). At the same time, as he "translates" traditional theological vocabulary into the language common in other disciplines, he exposes himself to criticism and questions regarding the legitimacy of his endeavour. Therefore, this thesis also deals with three main streams of criticism directed towards Tillich's use of "acceptance": (a) criticism of the "correlation" between theology and psychology, (b) criticism of the nature of Tillich's teaching on justification/acceptance, (c) criticism of excessively active or passive nature of "acceptance" in Tillich's theology.

Náboženství a vlastnická práva
Minárik, Pavol ; Chalupníček, Pavel (advisor) ; Lipka, David (referee) ; Berggren, Niclas (referee)
Religion and post-communist transition are two of the many issues that have earned attention of economists and social scientist in the recent decades. This dissertation collects three papers dealing with different issues concerning religion and the transition. The first one attempts to assess the role of religion in the transition and its impact on country's success in this process; it also outlines opportunities for research in this field. The second paper tries to uncover the role of religion in formation of economic and social attitudes of the people in post-communist countries. Both papers conclude that religion matters; Western Christianity appears to be more compatible with market economy than Orthodox Christianity and Islam, although these two religions are not necessarily an obstacle. Finally, the third paper deals with religious participation in post-communist countries. It shows that religious behavior is not completely independent of economic conditions and religious revivals in the post-communist era can be interpreted in economic terms.
A Concept of Man in Economics
Műller, Jan ; Chalupníček, Pavel (advisor) ; Doležalová, Antonie (referee)
This diploma thesis researches model of economic man, its historical background, and also modern critics of this concept and alternative approach to economic man, especially in behavioral economics. Human (im)perfection leads to the discussion about a range of liberty man should get eventually to which extent should a man be led by paternalism. Therefore this thesis introduces and tests concept of libertarian paternalism which is applied to drug issues. The thesis demonstrates that model of economic man is in many ways too simplified and insufficient. Thus, extention of this model with findings of psychology, biology and other sciences seems beneficial. Libertarian paternalism, despite few shortcomings, shows potential to be realisable and viable in certain situations.
Confessional political system and informal networks as the reasons of economic decline in Lebanon
Němeček, Stanislav ; Chalupníček, Pavel (advisor) ; Šmíd, Jan (referee)
This thesis attends the problem of institutional and political structure in a post-war economy of Lebanon. Lebanon was one of the countries in the Near east, which tried to apply principles known as Washington consensus. On this case we try to demonstrate the problem which appeared also in other countries of the world, where the same set of principles was applied and it was the insufficient attention dedicated to the issue of informal networks. We pay special attention to a confessional system in Lebanon which is based on division of powers on the basis of religion. This type of political structure produces creation of informal networks which substitute state apparatus and instigate corruption. The thesis proposes a modification of Lebanese system which will treat the institutional background with greater attention.
