    Ethical Aspects of the Quality Assessment in Slovakia.Vasil Gluchman - 2015 - Human Affairs 25 (4):380-389.
    The aim of the paper is to study socio-ethical aspects of Slovak higher education policy in the context of contemporary discussions on university assessment criteria. I conduct an ethical analysis and assess the criteria introduced in Slovakia that consider employment opportunities and the graduate unemployment rate, publishing in high impact journals, participation in European research programmes, etc., which often discriminates against the humanities and social sciences. On the other hand, I also point to the absence of a social contract (...)

  5. Moral Education in Slovakia and its Theoretical Basis.Vasil Gluchman - 2016 - Ethics and Bioethics (in Central Europe) 6 (1-2):79-89.
    With regard to existing concept of the moral education (ethics) in Slovakia, the questions of ethics and morals are only one of the partial sections. The dominant role is played by psychology based on Roberto Olivar’s concept with emphasis on pro–socialization and on Erickson’s concept of the psychosocial development. From the philosophy basis point of view, only Aristotle, even in reduced form and Spranger’s concept of the life forms are mentioned. Philosophy and ethics are only complements to more psychologically (...)

  7. Philosophizing in Slovakia: Reflections and Contexts (On the Receptivity of the Philosophical Thought in Slovakia).Rudolf Dupkala - 2009 - Filozofia 64 (6):552-559.
    The paper offers an examination of the patterns of philosophizing in Slovakia. In the author’s view, its predominating feature is its receptivity, i.e. accepting the particular streams and conceptions of European philosophy. However, not all forms of receptivity are to be judged as mere imitativeness or plagiarism. In spite of its receptiveness the philosophizing in Slovakia very often included creative reinterpretations, modifications and applications.

    From the 1970s on, much more attention has been given to medical ethics education than ever before. As such, medical ethics education and its importance have started to be accepted and acknowledged by the wider public and by academics as well. Slovakia is not an exception. Also here, considerable amount of attention and concern has been given lately to medical ethics and to medical ethics education. In this article, I will focus on medical ethics education for future physicians, namely (...)

    Popular Conspiracy Theories in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.Zuzana Panczová & Petr Janeček - forthcoming - Diogenes:039219212094561.
    The study presents popular conspiracy theories spread within the Czech and Slovak language milieu. Along with the growth in the number of internet portals disseminating this type of texts, their reflection in public opinion is also visible in the way almost every major foreign policy issue or domestic case is commented upon in public internet discussions. The authors seek to identify the narrative and rhetorical sources of conspiracism in these countries since the rise of modern nationalism in the 19th century, (...)

    In the article, we analyse ethical and moral issues of public administration in region of Eastern Slovakia through some cases of the last years. We focused on self-governing regions, namely the Košice and Prešov self-governing regions. We identified two fundamental situations where failures on the side of public administrators occur: selection processes for vacant positions, be it directly in public administration or institutions that fall under its domain, and public procurement with regard to the acquisition of goods and services.

According to author, there is possible to identify Milan Hodža with Weber’s model, Alexander Dubek with Aristotle’s one, Vladimír Meiar and Robert Fico are identified with Machiavelli’s model and Iveta Radiová with Erasmus’ model of professional ethics of politician in (...).

    This article is devoted to the development of nursing ethics in Slovakia before the year 1989. It points to the fact that it was impossible to speak about nursing ethics as an autonomous field in this period of time. Reflections on nursing ethics were presented within medical ethics, or particularly based on the importance of reflections about the need of philosophy within medicine.

    Current State of Research on Slavic Literatures in Slovakia.Dana Hučková - 2013 - Human Affairs 23 (2):302-310.
    In Slovakia Slavic literary studies can be found at the institutes of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and at university departments. The only SAS institute to truly focus on Slavic studies is the Ján Stanislav Institute of Slavistics. Other SAS institutes that deal with Slavic studies to a lesser extent are the Institute of Slovak Literature and the Institute of World Literature. There are also Slavic-oriented academic initiatives involving short-term projects. Considering this situation, there is a need to prepare (...)

Particularly we are oriented on study of the socially vulnerable groups of population identified according their income situation.

    Education as Tool for the Development of Creative Industries in Slovakia.Emília Madudová & Miroslav Šipikal - 2015 - Creative and Knowledge Society 5 (2):1-10.
    Education is widely accepted as important source of future economic growth and is strongly supported by public sources. Most of this support is oriented toward traditional education and industries. However, several studies show importance of creativity education as important feature for innovation and future growth. However, public support of creative industries is relatively new and most of policy measures that have been implemented are still not fully evaluated and understood. There si a strong need to look much more closer on (...)

    Au Pairs, Nannies and Babysitters: Paid Care as a Temporary Life Course Experience in Slovakia and in the UK.Zuzana Sekeráková Búriková - 2019 - Feminist Review 122 (1):80-94.
    This article argues that intersectional analyses of care work also need to include a temporal aspect. Drawing on ethnographic research on Slovak au pairs working in the UK and on interviews with both providers and employers of paid childcare in Slovakia, I examine how the temporariness of care work is created within both migrant and non-migrant settings. In particular, I demonstrate that both employers and providers conceptualise paid childcare as a temporary period in their lives and show the consequences (...)

Its psychometric properties are investigated on a Slovak sample. Its fit to the Rasch model with conditional maximum likelihood is tested. The Slovak version of the scale is shown to be a reliable and useful instrument for measuring ideological attitudes. The ideological attitudes of the Slovak respondents are compared with those of the (...)

    Tracing the Sign Národ in Political Thinking in Post-Totalitarian Slovakia.Catriona Menzies - 2011 - Human Affairs 21 (1):52-61.
    This paper sets out to examine political thinking in post-totalitarian Slovakia. Using the discourse theory and signification of Laclau and Mouffe, it considers the sign národ in relation to democracy and the EU. Seeking to pinpoint political thinking amongst the general populace, it bases its analysis on an examination of newspaper articles on “Building the State” published in the 1990s. It traces the roots of the sign from the 1960s to the present day and predicts that the EU signifier (...)

    A Short History of Ethics in Slovakia.Vasil Gluchman - 2017 - Human Affairs 27 (2):99-104.
    The history of ethical reasoning in Slovakia1 dates back to the beginning of the 16th century, a period when ethics and morals came to the fore of intellectual and philosophical thinking––owing to the influence of the humanism that prevailed during the Reformation2. This cultural and intellectual climate led to the revival of ancient culture, education, philosophy, and ethics, while a focus on purgation encouraged writers to ponder over the questions traditionally raised in ancient ethics: How should we live? How can (...)

    In the midst of the 1960s some of the Slovak philosophers have appropriated the Yugoslavian variant of the praxis philosophy developed at Zagreb University. It was a critical reformist stream with the idea of humanism in its core. The basis of their approach was an understanding of humans as active beings changing the world as well as themselves, their nature being practice. The representatives of this stream developed their uncompromised critique of the official philosophy and totalitarian regime of that time (...)
