CONCEPTUAL PARALLELS IN THE LIBERALISM OF KAREL HAVLICEK BOROVSKY AND JAN PALARIK (Ideove analogie v liberalizme Karla Havlicka Borovskeho a Jana Palarika)
Languages of publication
After the revolutionary year 1848 both Slovak and Czech political representations faced the same challenge in their searching for a new constitutional order, although their respective state-forming activity was differed. In this context the overlapping conceptions of Jan Palarik and Karel Havlicek Borovsky are worthy consideration. They both underline the strategy of gradualism in the nation-forming process as well as cultural distinctiveness combined with civic ethos. Further, they both combined the romanticism grounded in national feeling with the Enlightenment ideas and the importance of practical reason. Their liberalism underlining the national and civic equality and the bottom up political activity thus can be seen as a new incentive in creating the constitutional grounds of both Slovak and Czech nations.
