Abstract

"Studying the humanities is a journey to unemployment and volcanoes are a proof of the existence of hell." This is the title of a recent article published by Peter Chvojka, a lecturer of philosophy at the University of South Bohemia in the Czech Republic. Dr. Chvojka has drawn our attention to a shocking advertising campaign in the Czech Republic which warns pupils not to study at secondary schools and universities because they will not get a job and will be poor. Young people should allegedly do apprenticeships so that they would be available for employment in the assembly halls in the Czech Republic. How is it even possible that such dangerous nonsense is disseminated in the Czech Republic when society is on the cusp of the artificial intelligence revolution which will demand highly educated, critically thinking individuals? Jan Čulík discusses this issue with Peter Chvojka in this Britské listy Interview which was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 28th May 2021.
