Blahoslav Zbořil and the Problem of Values and Judgment in Czech Philosophy

This article deals with some axiological problems in the Czech philosophical thinking during the period between the two World Wars. In the first part the author depicts the reasons which brought about an increased interest in the problems of values and evaluation. In this context you can read about the solutions to these problems which are represented by the philosophers J. B. Kozák, J. Tvrdý and K. Engliš. The largest part of the article is devoted to the life and work of the philosopher Blahoslav Zbořil, whose book called The Understanding, Evaluation and Creation of Norms is considered to be the only study connected with this period that deals with axiological problems directly and presents their original solutions.
