(Czech) Musical Culture as Ways of Communication

Kód předmětu: YBK149 Garant: Kratochvíl,M.
Semestr: zimní Jazyk výuky: angličtina
Kredity: 3 Klíčová slova: -
Rozvrh: pá 12:30 - 13:50, místnost Y6020 (Jinonice - budova B, U Kříže 8, Praha 5)
This course aims to show, how music is an important part of our lives and how through music we can connect not only geographically distant places but also the past with the present. During this course we shall cross several borders – geographical, historical, between musical genres, and between music and other art forms.Music will be the main part of our focus, but we will use the music to learn about other things and about the ways the music is connected to other arts, politics, technology, and the society in general. We shall talk mainly about Czech music and culture, but we shall see how it has always been connected to the neighboring countries and how the music traveled across the borders.Therefore, when we will be talking about Leoš Janáček, we shall not so much analyze the notes, but we shall look how his music connected contemporary trends in classical music with the folk culture he was researching. Similarly we shall see how the aristocracy served as an important factor influencing musical forms, how the relation between local musicians and internationally connected nobility worked. We shall discuss the tension between artistic freedom and ideology during the communism and how those tensions manifested in rock music, jazz, or in films. Although it is focused on music, the course does not require any previous knowledge of music history or theory.

Economics and Psychology

Kód předmětu: YBA130 Garant: Špecián,P.
Semestr: zimní Jazyk výuky: angličtina
Kredity: 3 Klíčová slova: -
Rozvrh: pá 14:00 - 15:20, místnost Y6021 (Jinonice - budova B, U Kříže 8, Praha 5)
For a long time, the standard economic paradigm was dominated by models whose core assumption was that of rationality. However, various findings from cognitive and social psychology suggest that people are often prone to systematic errors, and have unexpected beliefs and preferences. How are the real people different from homo economicus? What heuristics do we rely upon in our reasoning and how may these heuristics lead us astray? How can irrationality be exploited in the markets and in politics? Should the government intervene to protect people from their own irrational choices? In the Economics and Psychology seminar, we will try to find answers to these questions as well as to many others. The seminar concentrates on how the psychological findings may enhance our reasoning about economic affairs and on their implications for applied policy. The core parts of our effort in the seminar will be home-assigned readings and classroom discussion.

Rozvrh: út 14:00 - 15:20, místnost Y5021 (Jinonice - budova B, U Kříže 8, Praha 5)
V současném filosofickém diskursu se živě diskutuje otázka, jakým způsobem lze uvést v soulad každodenní pojem, jenž o sobě, coby lidech, máme, s vědeckým pojmem člověka. Je patrné, že existuje rozpor mezi tím pohledem na člověka, jenž klade do popředí jeho povahu morální, vědomé, intencionální bytosti, a vědecky konstruovaným určením "homo sapiens". V tomto kurzu se budeme věnovat a diskutovat důležité koncepce "conditio humana", lidského určení, tj. klíčovým pojetím "toho, co nás dělá lidmi".
