PHILOSOPHIZING IN SLOVAKIA: REFLECTIONS AND CONTEXTS (ON THE RECEPTIVITY OF THE PHILOSOPHICAL THOUGHT IN SLOVAKIA) (Filozofovanie na Slovensku: Reflexie a suvislosti (K problematike receptivnosti filozofickeho myslenia na Slovensku))
The paper offers an examination of the patterns of philosophizing in Slovakia. In the author's view, its predominating feature is its receptivity, i.e. accepting the particular streams and conceptions of European philosophy. However, not all forms of receptivity are to be judged as mere imitativeness or plagiarism. In spite of its receptiveness the philosophizing in Slovakia very often included creative reinterpretations, modifications and applications.
