Ekonomické názory v humanistickém díle Jana Amose Komenského
[Economic opinions in the humanistic work of Johan Amos Comenius]


  • Ilona Bažantová


Economic opinions of Johan Amos Comenius (1592 - 1670) were not completely described yet, although they can be found in several writings. Comenius differentiated from Medieval thoughts by his opinions in respect of an enterprise, a position of laws and an activity of sovereign, by refusing monopolies, emphasising the importance of level of education for the development and wealth-being of the nation, and by describing positive aspects of intellectual work. His opinions are often similar to mercantilistic point of view.
