DISPUTE WITH JANUSZ LUKASZYNSKI ABOUT THE INTERPRETATION OF MY PHILOSOPHY
Languages of publication
In his book 'Homo in rebus.Wybrane problemy inkontrologii' (The Human Being within the Things. Selected problems of the Theory of Encounters) Lukaszynski examines the system presented in A. Nowicki's books 'The Man in the World of the Works' (1974) and 'Encounters within the Things' (1991). His interpretation is documented with 772 notes to 189 diverse Nowicki's publications. The title of the book correctly features the central category of erganthropia that is the real presence of the human being in his works. In the seperated chapters Lukaszynski presents the foundations of the system: atheism and the theory of encounters, leaving in the shade the pluralism and the axiology in which the culture is considered as the greatest value. Lukaszynski immobilises the object of his investigation, presenting the system of Nowicki in the shape which it had 14 years ago, but for Nowicki the philosophy is 'the thought of an incessant movement'. Nowicki called his philosophy 'the open system' that is always ready for modifications, ramifications, developing and deepening. The identity of system consists in the retaining of the same foundations, but the mannner of understanding (modus intelligendi) of his concepts becomes deeper. The central categories of the system ( human being, things, encounters, culture) are not independent and isolated , but penetrate and influence each other.
