Literature - Folklore - Anthropology. Piotr Kowalski on Himself and His Early Works

Languages of publication



In this article, I made use of auto presentation included in the documents presented by Piotr Kowalski in the professional situations connected with his academic career, in its initial stages. Kowalski`s scientific way led from investigations on popular literature and mass culture to the anthropology of history and media. In his observations and analysis of contemporary culture, he always had taken into consideration the historical determinations of human behaviour and artefacts in many social spaces. In his reconstructions, his visions of the world, Kowalski regarded both the synchronous and diachronous dimensions because there is no possibility to understand the present day if one cannot understand history.
