Témy esejí kvalifikačného kola IPO:

  • One may say that the fact that it is painted on canvas does not enter into the meaning. It just supports the painting. It is not at all part of the meaning, even if it is part of the object that embodies the meaning… It is the invisible properties that make something art. (Arthur Danto: What Art Is. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2013, p. 39–40)
  • In viewing ourselves from a perspective broader than we can occupy in the flesh, we become spectators of our own lives. We cannot do very much as pure spectators of our own lives, so we continue to lead them, and devote ourselves to what we are able at the same time to view as no more than a curiosity, like the ritual of an alien religion. (Thomas Nagel: The Absurd. In: Exploring the Meaning of Life. An Anthology and Guide. Ed. by Joshua W. Seachris. Oxford. Wiley-Blackwell, 2013, pp. 242)
  • A writer who says that there are no truths, or that all truth is ‘merely relative,’ is asking you not to believe him. So don’t. (Roger Scruton: Modern Philosophy: An Introduction and SurveyPenguin Books 1996)
