As based on two Polish texts of the first half of 19th century (by Henryk Rzewuski) and two present ones (by Andrzej Kusniewicz), the paper considers the question of the way philosophical reflection upon the history of some country (Poland) might deliberately omit the fundamental thought about the country's independence. It also tackles the mode such thought, referred to as 'denial', might replace the ideological problem of independence with the principle of subordinating a country to the business of foreign and enemy country. Thus, it reflects the manner in this optic of historical discourse in which the seminal historical problems of the country were transferred to other territories, omitting the proper Centre, where the thought of political system reform and defensive fight concentrated. The paper also ponders on the problems of occurrence in the different phases of literary creativity by Rzewuski - a distinguished politician - the views subordinated to the thought praising independence as well as a totally opposing thought having, as contrasted to the first, the characteristics of 'denial'.
