This Dialogue and Universalism issue includes two thematic selections. The first one entitled Human Nature beyond Naturalism. Phenomenological, An-thropological and Psychoanalytical Perspectives is a collection of papers founded on the idea of non-reducibility of human being to natural phenomena. The authors investigate human being from three antinaturalistic standpoints, significant in contemporary philosophy. The standpoints grounding their con-siderations are weak antinaturalisms since they regard human being an ontically complex entity—with natural as well as supernatural (in a modern, not religious sense of the term) aspects. This type of antinaturalism prevails in those contem-porary philosophical conceptions of man which oppose naturalistic apprehen-sions currently much more widespread. The presuppositions of the selection of the papers and its contents are presented in detail in the Introduction authored by its editors, Jagna Brudzińska and Stanisław Czerniak. The second collection of papers in this Dialogue and Universalism issue entitiled In Memoriam Marek Siemek is a continuation and at the same time a complement of the previous one (2/2016) which has been devoted entirely to an outstanding Polish philosopher Marek Siemek. The previous Dialogue and Universalism issue has been thematically concentrated on forgotten as well as over-estimated problems in social philosophy whereas this issue includes the papers thematically diversified but joined together by the common feature: they are intellectual gifts of their authors to Marek Siemek’s memory in the fifth anniversary of his death, an amazing evidence that non omnis moriar. We would like to express our gratitude to all the contributors of this collection. First and foremost, the editorial board of Dialogue and Universalism warmly thanks Professor Wolfram Hogrebe—a great authority for Marek Siemek and a person of exceptional importance in his life.
