Komenského etické vize o nápravě věcí lidských
Komenský's ethical vision of the reform of human affairs
Languages of publication
The Reformation did not help to unify European Christianity, just the opposite;it led to the intensifying of disputes not only amongst Catholics and Protestants, but also between Lutherans and Calvinists. There followed a period of religious and civil feuding. Komenský entered this antagonistic climate with his political philosophy, which focused on eliminating the causes of hate and mutual conflict. This direction culminated in Komenský's Panorthosie (Universal Reform). This best outlines his vision of lasting peaceful conciliation, which lay in educational, religious, and civil reform. Komenský's ethical attempts to put human aairs to rights has its philosophical basis in the understanding of man as an entity, whose mission in this world is: to be a wise, moral, and pious man.
