Annotation:In the second term, the course Drawing as a Tool of Artistic Thinking continues in gradually opening a spectrum of topics. The specific content of the course is adapted to the individual interests of students and reflects other circumstances (e.g., the current availability of external experts). During the four-term lecture cycle a complete range will be offered and during the first two terms information on all main directions of search will be provided: direction in 1) sociology, 2) philosophy and literature 3) focused on natural sciences and technology, 4) following marginal and special artistic activities. In doing so, the student is encouraged, in the form of his/her own studies, to expand his/her research in the area closest to his/her abilities and earlier training, and, on the other hand, to try to investigate areas unknown to him/her. What is massively preferred, is student´s search for specific, personal, if only uncomplete experience with a different area of thinking, which would replace overall encyclopedia knowledge. When exploring area focused on renown works of classical or philosophical literature, it is based solely on one own´s reading experience with a minimum number of works of original source literature, not on a set of knowledge about the history of literature. In the practical part of the lectures the focus is on attempts to apply the acquired knowledge in the artwork, while creating a set of firsthand experiences (author's diary).
