Attempts at reconstruction the atopic personality of the philosopher presented in 16th century Polish works are one of the most intriguing topics in Renaissance intellectual culture. The problem of the atopy is here subject of thorough scrutiny: it starts with an attempt at determination of the moment the atopy is being born, then it sheds light on the obstacles the philosopher faces while thinking speculatively, and ultimately it recreates the philosopher's 'weird' personality. This endeavor required characterizing the different manifestations of the philosopher's exteriorization (such as, among others, baffling looks, customs, and way of living), as well as examining their internal motivations. Apart from the ancient philosophers, the paper highlights the manifestations of the atopy in the actions of Polish Renaissance philosophers, e.g. Stanislaw Grzepski and Grzegorz of Sanok.
