Lecture in language
Professor Anna Hogenová is a renowned Czech philosopher and writer. Her great passion and mission is phenomenology, which examines the structures of conscious experience as experienced from a subjective or first-person point of view; it shows phenomena as they are revealed to the human consciousness. A frequent topic of her writing and speeches is the care of the human soul, seen from the perspective of being, the return to our true self, the principles of self-knowledge and self-defense that are more than needed in today's fast-paced digital age.
Her studies at the Faculty of Sports and Philosophy at Charles University were a good basis for maintaining the body – spirit balance. She currently lectures at the Faculty of Education, Charles University, where she is also the head of the Department of Philosophy and Ethics, and at the Hussite Theological Faculty, Charles University, where she leads the Department of Philosophy. She deals with topics such as physical movement, truth as openness (known under the Greek term Alétheia), body and corporeality, as well as the philosophy of sport. In her lectures she refers mainly to Plato, Descartes, Nietzsche and Patočka. In addition to her expert works, Anna Hogenová has also written books for the general public.
