A Memory of Professor Lubomír Nový

I am glad that I can contribute to the commemoration of professor Lubomir Novy and I appreciate that I had the chance to be one of his many students. Lubomir Novy was, together with his other colleagues, able to create a very friendly environment for us students. He stood out with his dynamism. His exams were not easy, because it was always a lesson in creating questions and searching for answers. I think that this "creating questions and searching for answers" was his lifelong attitude. Thanks to this, he was one of the main personalities of philosophical thought in this country in the sixties. He remained creative even in the nineties when he returned to his profession after an enforced break.
