Translations of two books by Russian philosopher N. O. Lossky (1870-1965) have been published in Czech recently, History of Russian Philosophy and Doctrine of Reincarnation. Lossky had a huge impact and influence in the exploration of philosophy in the former Czechoslovakia. In 1921, he was forced to leave the USSR. First he found refuge in Czechoslovakia, where he taught at the university in Prague. There he published in the Czech language: 'Theoretical and Practical Meaning of Teachings of Professor Hoppe about I' (1933); Metaphysical Conception of Human Personality in the Sense of Teachings of V. Hoppe (1934); Industrialism, Communism and the Loss of Personality (1934); 'Resurrection' (1934); Dialectic Materialism (1938). After the outbreak of World War II, he taught at the university in Bratislava and published in the Slovak language: Conditions of the Perfect Good (1944); Absolute Criterion of Truth (1946), and Dostoyevsky and His Christian Worldview (1946). In his books, Lossky deepened his philosophical theory of intuitionism and he paid special attention to cognitive coordination. Lossky described his metaphysical conception as hierarchical individualism or organic concrete ideal-realism.
