doc. Mgr. Jiří Hoblík Ph.D.
At the Department of Political Science and Philosophy of the Faculty of Arts of Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, I teach the science of religion, the philosophy of religion and ethics. In the science of religion I deal with the history of religious thought, the theory of religion, the aesthetics of religion, the question of the state and religion, and the analysis of religious texts. In addition to standard courses of the science of religion and philosophy of religion, I also teach religion aesthetics, "State and religion", the courses "Life and Death in the History of Religion" and "The Philosophy of Love". I also deal with the philosophical transformation of religious ideas into modern thinking and the ancient sources of the philosophy of history.
Within the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague (Centre for Classical Studies), I deal with early Jewish thought, early Christian literature, and the links between Judaism and early Christianity.
