The Emersonian Pynchon
Naser, Safwan ; Robbins, David Lee (advisor) ; Roraback, Erik Sherman (referee)
Ralph Waldo Emerson and his postmodemist colleague Thomas Pynchon ... a seemingly incongruous connection. The aim of this thesis is to explore the unusual relationship between these prominent authors and advert to the great influence which Ralph Waldo Emerson unquestionably had not only on authors who were not separated from him by such a noticeable temporal abysm, but also a most recent author who, according to the vast majority of the definitions of the postmodern, should be entirely free of any Emersonian influence. This intricate relationship will be assessed mainly through Mason and Dixon, the most recent novel by Thomas Pynchon which reflects many aspects of what Emerson found absolutely central. The summation of what seems to be propounded throughout the entire novel is represented by the idea of determining boundaries, in both the literal and the abstract sense. Emerson himself devoted much attention to this subject matter and it is clear that Pynchon and Emerson have much in common from this perspective, which holds true to such an extent that the boundary between the postmodem and romantic is itself facing the pressure of redefinition, which is in turn a fundamental concept which both authors share.

Ethics in Business
Naser, Safwan ; Dědič, Jan (advisor) ; Boháček, Martin (referee) ; Radová, Jarmila (referee) ; Sabo, Mikuláš (referee)
In spite of the undisputable significance of ethics in virtually all fields of human behavior, the lack of ethics in business is painfully obvious with respect to the current financial crisis. The dissertation focuses on the theoretical analysis of the complications inherent to any attempt of defining ethics and ethical behavior, as well as the analysis of the intricate connection between theory and practice. The analysis of Islamic ethics and the financial crisis draws on the preceding theoretical background and sheds some light on the problems related to tack of ethics in business and the indispensable necessity of substantially augmenting the relevance of ethics not only in business, but in all the fields interconnected with the subject matter of ethics, which requires resolving the aforementioned intricacy that characterizes the link between theory and practice.
