Languages of publication



The content of this paper is determined by the continuation of the headline: How did people do, which were their needs, wishes, feelings and activities, and what was 'right' and socially correct. Then the paper deals with activities pointing to emotional satisfaction. The main task pursued is to provide the base for a future description and explanation of the standard of living, of the quality of life and the life feeling as well as the quality of population in the researched period. The possibilities of research into the conditions of successful existence determined by the long-term development of the qualities of population are explained. The significance of the research consists in explaining the long-term tendencies of development producing the recent level of common culture of the population in the Czech Lands. The content and the theory join the monographs by the team Machacova - Matejcek, published in the years 2002 and 2008, dealing with the long-term evolution of social stratification and mobility of society in the Czech Lands and with its patterns - the common culture. The future research has to explain the 'existential' results
