Selected contents from this journal

Kazimierz Twardowski used to write about meaning although he never presented an exhaustive conception of it. One could distinguish two stages in his work: psychological and anti-psychological. In the first period meaning was understood as a particular psychological product (an element of consciousness), while in the latter - as something we get to by the way of abstracting from particular products. Although many philosophers consider Twardowski to be a representative of psychologism, despite an apparent evolution of his views, there are premises that point to a considerable change in his views concerning the conception of meaning. The author of the article sets out to attain two objectives: a reconstruction of the views on the question of meaning belonging to the founder of the Lvov-Warsaw School as well as an attempt to answer the question about the existential status of meanings.
