In honor of the 2018 centennial of Czech independence, philosopher of law Jiř� Přib�n and award-winning Czech journalist Karel Hv�zďala took the opportunity to examine key moments in Czech history from the ninth century to the twenty-first. Covering such a broad span of time allowed them to look into the past and question how Czechs have viewed their history at different points--and what that means for the Czech present and future. As contemporary politics drift closer towards totalitarianism, historiography from scholars and thinkers who experienced twentieth-century totalitarian regimes is more important than ever. In their spirited dialogue, Hv�zďala and Přib�n raise and explore these crucial issues, sharing subjects normally reserved for university seminars with the broader public.
