The Philosophy of the post-Štúrean Generation

(Original title: Filozofia poštúrovskej generácie)
Filozofia, 34 (1979), 3, 306-317.
Type of work: Papers - Philosophical Thinking in Slovakia
Publication language: Slovak
The paper is dedicated to an analysis of the philosophical development in Slovakia in the latter half of the last century. This development was influenced by the defeat of the insurrection and it was characterized by an inclination to messianism and fideism. The ideological platform of the representatives of the post-Štúrean national revivalist generation was elaborated by Ľ. Štúr in his work the Slavs and the World of the Future. This meant a clearcut deflection from the progressive ideas of our enlighteners, it was an expression of resignation and defeatism. It was in sharp contrast to the increasing influence of materialist and socialist ideas on the European continent that in spite of the defeats of revolution determined the main direction of progress in philosophical thinking.
