Abstract(s)
The First World War in 1918 was considered as a manifestation of much deeper changes that had taken place in Europe since the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. This development could be evaluated differently. The thesis will present the perspectives of two prominent Czech intellectuals – Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk and Karel VI. Schwarzenberg. It will be shown how these two different, but in many ways similar personalities viewed the issue of freedom under the impression of more general social and political development in postwar Europe. Therefore it will be important to answer what was their ideal of freedom, what role freedom play, according them, in the life of individual and society and how it can be best secured.
