The Polish Science Voice

A publication Co-financed by Minister of Science and Higher Education
The end of the year inspires philosophical reflection. While this issue of The Polish Science Voice brings a host of reports on innovative technology and research, it also offers a humanities perspective, which is a part and parcel of this publication’s mission—as shown by almost every issue of the magazine. This time, our special guest is an exceptional researcher in the humanities, Prof. Tadeusz Gadacz, a philosopher and expert on religion who has undertaken a huge, 12-volume work on the history of 20th-century philosophy—Historia filozofii XX wieku. He does not hesitate to call this project a madcap one—because of its sheer magnitude.
