Contemporary thought is characterized by an expansion of the scope of traditionally defined disciplines, including philosophy. The aim of this series is to demonstrate this tendency through a selection of authors and books (Czech and foreign) as well as thematic monographs, showing something like philosophy in a dialogue with other areas of knowledge. However, it is clear that the word "present” should emphasize everything that our period understands as contemporary rather than chronology. Miroslav Petříček is the head of the series.
