- ItemGraf Albert Joseph Hoditz (1706-1778) als deutschsprachiger Autor(Technická univerzita v Liberci, Česká republika, 2017) Zlá, IvetaThe aim of the article is to introduce Count Albert Joseph Hodic as an author writing in German. Although his literary work has been preserved only in a torso form, it offers insight into the work of this author at the turn of baroque and enlightenment. The preserved Hodic’s poems are intertwined by the influences of both artistic epochs and reflect Hodic’s views of life. Hodic’s literary work can be seen as part of his cultural activities aimed at creating a castle garden full of works of art and at the same time the atmosphere that attracted many distinguished guests to Silesian Rudoltice in the second half of the 18th century. Last but not least, the artistic climate was completed with theatrical, ballet and opera performances partly written by Hodic himself.
- ItemStřet civilizací: Test Popperem(Technická univerzita v Liberci, Česká republika, 2017) Jurásek, MiroslavSamuel P. Huntington’s famous book, “The Clash of Civilizations”, has evoked controversy since it was first published. Many authors have referred to this work in a different way: some have taken it as a paradigm, some regarded it as a theory, others (including Huntington himself) as a hypothetical scenario of a possible future. If scientific theory is a mark of objective knowledge, the question of whether scientific theory, a metaphysical narrative without conclusive evidence in practice, or a mere cluster of impressions, opinions, and perceptions of the author, is a cardinal meaning for determining how to handle a particular product of scientific thought . The aim of this article is to justify the fact that the objectivity of the idea of the clash of civilizations cannot be overestimated, because Popper’s methodology of science is a well-written metaphysical narrative that nevertheless generates new provocative and bold hypotheses with the potential to become a scientific theory.
