This article is a personal attempt to comment on the philosophy of encounter of Professor Adam Węgrzecki. I point to the convergence of his views and his attitude to life. Through the prism of this convergence, I interpret both the methods used by the Professor to create his own philosophical conception, and the conclusions which he formulates. From this perspective, I also discuss some selected axiological aspects of his philosophy of encounter. The aim of this article is to familiarize wider audiences with this important phenomenological concept and to encourage more independent study of his approach.
