Department of Philosophy
What is supported by the grant?
We want to support students of the Department of Philosophy (Centre for Ethics included) in their research activities (writing PhD./MA thesis, writing papers) and international mobility.
In a new contribution to Centre's blog, Joseph Wiinikka-Lydon talks about under-appreciated long-term effects of violence in a society.

Carolyn Nordstrom calls it “the tomorrow of violence.”
Quoting a survivor of war, who says, “the life of war is a damaged (estragado) life,” Nordstrom begins to reflect on the complicated and ubiquitous ways violence, particularly war, affects societies. How has exposure to war – even in such places as in the United States where for many war has been more indirectly felt – shaped culture, politics, and personal and shared development?
Center research Joe Wiinikka-Lydon gave a lecture at the University Hradec Králové's philosophy department titled "Moral Injury and the Hidden Costs of War."
In the new instalment of Centre blog, Ondřej Beran argues that rationality is overrated. You can read it HERE.
This short reflection is motivated by my vague uneasiness about some twists of the ways in which people – “ordinary” people as well as those with academic background and aspirations – sometimes talk about (and praise) rationality.
On Tuesday, February 4, Centre for ethics will host an internal workshop entitled Disagreement, (In)tolerance and Moral Change.
It will take place in room Alpha (G building, 5th floor).
