This volume is devoted to the person and work of Leszek Kolakowski, who died in July 2009. At the turn of the 1940s and 1950s, Leszek Kolakowski belonged to a group of young intellectuals actively supporting on the "ideological front" and in the University of Warsaw the new political agendas of Marxist provenance introduced in Poland. But already in 1955-56, he came to the fore of a movement of philosophical revisionists radically questioning the validity of these Marxist prescriptions. This resulted in his expulsion from the Communist Party in the early 1960s, then from the University and finally from Poland after the "March events" in 1968. Presented in this volume are, on the one hand, texts drawing up a historical balance sheet of theoretical achievements of Leszek Kolakowski (articles by Andrzej Walicki and Andrew Targowski), and, on the other, essays devoted to certain aspects of his philosophical position (articles by Marcin Krol, Zofia Rosinska, Janusz Dobieszewski, Witold Mackiewicz and Janusz Kuczynski). Also presented in this volume are some occasional essays sketching a portrait of Leszek Kolakowski (by Marek J. Siemek, Karol Toeplitz and Jerzy Szacki). The book is closed with an extensive bibliography.
