Philosophical Work of Nikolai Lossky
Haicl, Matouš ; Nykl, Hanuš (advisor) ; Filová, Simona (referee)
This thesis presents the philosophical system of Nikolai Lossky. The thesis includes basic Lossky's biographical data and the philosophical system itself is interpreted from the point of view of three philosophical fields - gnoseology, metaphysics and ethics. Lossky was conceiving his system progressively with an emphasis on its inner interconnection. Firstly he formulated his study of intuition, by which he entered a dialogue with the European tradition because of his new concept of human cognition. Afterwards he postulated the dichotomy of two spheres of the world - the kingdom of God and the kingdom of dissension. A human being stands between these two worlds and theirs life mission is to find a way back to God. In the end there are presented some of the applications of Lossky's basic theses in a few shorter works and there is also a valuation of Lossky's contribution for today's philosophical tradition and possible perspectives of development of his thoughts.
Brand product as a symbol of young participants
Haicl, Matouš ; Novotná, Eliška (advisor) ; Kincl, Tomáš (referee)
This theses Brand product as a symbol of young participants is focused on the phenomenon of brands, which is interpreted through its relation to social status. In the theoretical part of the theses there are two contradictory views discussed (T. Veblen's and G. Lipovetsky's), which provide two different points of view concerning contemporary society and the relation between luxurious goods and social status. Through this discussion the thesis provides the characteritics of youth in the context of its developement during the 20th century. Another discussed topic are marketing techniques focusing on today's young generation. In the research part the author aims to find a connection between luxurious brands consumption and the concept of status among young adults studying Czech high schools. Results did not prove this connection to be very strong, and it seems therefore that Lipovetsky's point of view was the one closer to our analysis.

Projection and throwness, the voluntary and the involuntary. The character of human freedom between Heidegger and Ricoeur.
Haicl, Matouš ; Němec, Václav (advisor) ; Čapek, Jakub (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to contrast Martin Heidegger's concept of projection and thrownness with Paul Ricoeur's dichotomy of the voluntary and the involuntary, both of which attempt to describe the state of human freedom. The concept of freedom is the focal point of this comparison. According to both Heidegger and Ricoeur, human beings posses freedom that is limited by thrownness and the involuntary and both philosophers approach this problem analogically. It is also important to note that Ricoeur built on Heidegger's foundation and was inspired by some of his ideas. Not only will this thesis explore the analogies and main points of Ricoeur's and Heidegger's concepts, it will also demonstrate what changes the concept of human freedom underwent. This should help shed some light on the nature of human freedom which opens a wide range of options to choose from, although it is always limited by involuntary elements. The comparison will be based on Heidegger's concept of freedom which he described in his book Being and Time, and Ricoeur's concept of free will which he discussed in Philosophy of the Will I.
