  1. Jan PatočKa and Charta 77 as a Philosophical Problem.Dariusz Bęben - 2017 - Folia Philosophica 37:111--121.
    Patočka’s philosophical work is very extensive; therefore, it is necessary to pay special attention to each area of his interest. It seems that the most important thing in his philosophical heritage is his effort to bridge political and philosophical thought. The aim of this article is to describe the influence of the philosophy of Jan Patočka on the Charter 77 programme. His role was revealed mainly in providing Charter 77 with the moral and existential context.

  2. Patočka and English Sensualism and its Place in Modern Philosophy.Dušan Hruška - 2017 - Folia Philosophica 37:9--29.
    The reception of the British empirical-sensualist tradition as a unique form of philosophising has its special place in the history of philosophy. Jan Patočka takes this fact into consideration, but his reception and interpretation of British empiricism is not purely historical. Patočka was trained by Husserl’s phenomenology and formed by Heidegger’s intellectual heritage, and this is reflected in his original philosophical thinking. Furthermore, his philosophical thought is highly influenced by a motif initially formed on the grounds of Husserl’s phenomenology as (...)

  3. PatočKa, Nietzsche, and the Issue of Man.ŠTefan Jusko - 2017 - Folia Philosophica 37:87--109.
    In framing the question about the meaning of man and human history, Patočka draws on historical-philosophical and phenomenological sources. By tracking the genesis of the concept of eternity from Kant to the 20th century, he concludes that human meaning cannot be derived from moral postulates which exceed finitness of man. By abandoning the concept of eternity, Patočka concludes, the question of meaning cannot be bound by human targets, because the purpose is already objectified, existing without the horizon of one‘s being, (...)

  5. Patočka and Hegel’s Philosophy of the History of Philosophy.Vladimír Leško - 2017 - Folia Philosophica 37:67--86.
    Hegel’s history of philosophy has a special place within his philosophical thought, and this fact is evidence of its philosophical importance. It has become the organ of the self-knowing mind in time as an integral component of the philosophy of the objective spirit. Patočka very precisely defines four main dimensions of Hegel’s philosophy of the history of philosophy: 1. The development of philosophy is organic. Different philosophies are different developmental stages of the same organism. 2. The role of an individual (...)

  6. Patočka and Rorty. The Problem of Freedom.Katarína Mayerová - 2017 - Folia Philosophica 37:49--66.
    Patočka’s and Rorty’s philosophy offers a foundation for the reconstruction of liberalism and a possibility of fulfilling individual freedom. Patočka intends to assess the value of transcendence and its relevance to life. He attempts to save metaphysics, for it does not need to become dogmatic. Contemporary readers may find Patočka’s reflections on freedom valuable. Patočka invites people to connect their spirituality with skepticism and modesty, and according to Socratic knowing of unknowing, with humility, which makes them non-dogmatically open to transcendence. (...)

  7. Patočka and Socratic Knowing of the Unknown.Róbert Stojka - 2017 - Folia Philosophica 37:31--48.
    Socrates as a philosopher is remarkably present in Patočka’s thought in all periods of his philosophical life. Patočka accepts the Socratic idea of knowing the unknown. He is developing this idea step by step throughout the various periods of his philosophical work. Socratic knowing of the unknown, transformed successively through the problematisation and the moment of negativity into the principle of historicity, means for Patočka the essential resort to his own concept of philosophy of history in its top form. With (...)
