Abstracts
Piotr Kowalski’s impressive work, the content of all his books (thematically varied) considered as a whole, provides us with what was his conscious intention: ‘the history of understanding the world’. That consists of descriptions of ‘magic culture’ and ‘popular culture’ (postmodernity) as the ones which are separate beings; there is no historical continuity between them as if ‘the history of mentality’ was made of two phases and meant a transition from symbolic forms to conventional signs. He described that history as the history of the signs and texts, the process of losing the referentiality of semiotic forms. Thus, the totally different types of culture, ‘the magic culture’ and ‘the postmodern culture’, require different interpretational methods. The presented article is a study of the essential claims by Piotr Kowalski, on which of his publications are based.
