In the present issue of 'Etyka' the proceedings of the conference held in December 2004 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Maria Ossowska's death are published. It contains the authors papers that were presented as well as short opinions and views of the panel discussants. At the time she begun her academic career Maria Ossowska had to overcome significant difficulties to win recognition in a men's world. It was a time when women started to succeed also in the field of science. On entering this man-dominated world M. Ossowska did not give up her gender. A talented scholar, she always stressed that she was not merely an ethicists but an investigator of morals. Maria Ossowska had the rare ability to reconcile personal sensitivity to human problems, and so to moral phenomena, with a stance of a researcher who analyzes them thoroughly. She did that with admirable independency. It is a difficult and rare ability which in authors' opinion is particularly important now, especially in Poland, where independent thought about morals is almost disappearing. This is a legacy which warrants Maria Ossowska a special place in Polish science.
