Jan Patočka (1907- 1977) is considered one of the most important contributors to Czech philosophy, as well as one of the most influential central European philosophers of the 20th century. Having studied in Prague, Paris, Berlin and Freiburg, he was one of the last pupils of Edmund Husserl and, who is considered the founder of phenomenology, and Martin Heidegger.
Jan Patočka is mostly known as a thinker successfully developing fundaments of Husserl´s and Heidegger´s ontology, but his work consist also many original and important ideas solving problems of philosophy of art.
The aim of the lecture is present the most important ideas of Patočka´s philosophy of art in context of main motives of his philosophy. Patočka´s philosophy of art is mostly related to noetic and problems of truth, but more precisely is Patočka´s conception of art mostly apparent in context of his reflection about sense and truth of modern Philosophy and modern Science.
