„Life in the Idea“: Idea as Life according to Jan Patočka

(Original title: „Život v idei“, idea ako život u Jana Patočku)
Filozofia, 70 (2015), 6, 449-457.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The paper deals with early Patočka’s writings, namely the one embodying his main philosophical intention which even today is still worthy attention. It makes us remember that the work of a philosopher requires freedom and courage, if we are to rise to the challenges and ideologies which Patočka did not live to see.
