the essence of photography in the digital age
Doubek, Zdeněk ; Holeček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Váša, Ondřej (referee)
The diploma thesis solves the question of photography not only from the point of view of a work of art, but as a part of a cultural code. Photography in the digital era has the potential to become a new kind of visual language. From this perspective, the photographic universe reveals several essential questions, which we address here. These questions explore topics such as: historical development of images and text, the difference between traditional images and technical images, the cultural impact of mass production of digital devices and photographs, the essence of photography as a symbol from the point of view of semiotics and logic, the difficulties of deciphering photography, the linguistic aspects of digital photography or the meaning of photography in virtual (public) space. Due to the nature of the monitored topics, the work will address problems mainly related to language, logic, epistemology, human freedom in the context of man/device and marginally also semiotics.
Imaginative apologetics
The focus of this thesis lies in the cooperation of imagination and apologetics, which - if succesful - can be a step towards meaningful sharing of the gospel. Imagination as a way of perception of meaning can also be a useful tool in today's world, which seems to lose interest in meaning whatsoever. We seem to find a representative case of imaginative apologetics in the works of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien and Dorothy L. Sayers. Using imaginative way, these authors deal with many apologetical issues in their stories. The need for a good quality work of imaginative apologetics seems even more valid, when we learn that many atheistic and agnostic authors use imaginative ways to defend ideology of their own; this thesis deals namely with Philip Pullman, whose work could be marked as work of agnostic imaginative apologetics.

Meaning in the Context of Existential Hagiotherapy
Nečasová, Eliška ; Racková, Barbora (advisor) ; Stretti, Sylvie (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to describe meaning in the context of Existential Hagiotherapy and to answer the following research question: How do hagiotherapy participants experience the existential meaning? The first chapter reflects the chosen topic for the context of social work. It draws on a discursive conception of social work and a typology of the interrelationship between spiritual and professional discourse (see appendix A.1). This thesis is based on the belief that hagiotherapy belongs to spiritually sensitive social work. The second chapter focuses on the trends of existential therapy. It points out the considerable differences between the different trends, but also the similarities that can be found between them. In particular, three specific trends are important for this thesis, namely existential psychotherapy according to I.D. Yalom, logotherapy and definitely existential hagiotherapy. The third chapter deals with the meaning of life and shows how individual philosophers see it. Firstly, the different perceptions of the so-called higher or cosmic meaning and its influence on human freedom are pointed out. It also points out one of the questions connected with the existence of God, which mankind was occupied with for thousands of years: If there is a God, where does evil come from in the...
Thinking in Hannah Arendt's conception
Škardová, Michaela ; Zicha, Zbyněk (advisor) ; Rybák, David (referee)
The thesis is an essayistic exploration of Hannah Arendt's thinking, with the central aim of naming the specifics of this thinker's thought, her sources of inspiration and her conception of thinking itself. The thesis attempts to clarify in what ways Arendt's way of thinking may inspire. The starting point of the thesis is her conception of the vita activa and the vita contemplativa, where the distinction between these two lives serves as a starting point for exploring the soil of the spirit. In relation to spiritual activities, the main purpose of the thesis is then to clarify the uniqueness of inquiry in Hannah Arendt's conception and to highlight the inherent nature of thought. The thesis outlines why it is important to inquire after thought itself and suggests the grounds for why Hannah Arendt acts like that. The thesis seeks to show how we are in the world through thinking and how practical reason is the defining factor in today's society. The thesis culminates in the importance of questioning in the process of education. KEYWORDS Hannah Arendt, thinking, vita activa, vita contemplativa, action, speech, practical thinking, meaning, conscience, questioning
"New" role of an object in "object art" and "art of instalation"
Holubcová, Klára ; Bláha, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Kornatovský, Jiří (referee)
Submitted graduation theses offer different views of questions relating to an object (thing) in the "object art". The foundation of the "object art" brought a "new" role of an object. It does mean that the border of an art types are no more close, as well as life and art are now transparent. We can find qualitative changes in a various ways of treatment of an object. I saw these changes in according to four basic criteria: meaning, material, form and function. Another centre line of the text are overlaps of fine art and applied art, which detects common tendences in both spheres.
