Speakers also attempt to indicate the importance of closer cooperation between Polish philologists in Poland and abroad in the process of ‘reconstructing’ the faculty and discipline. Attention has also been paid to the Congress itself as the speakers attempt to answer the question whether it has reached its goals and which postulate raised during the Congress should be regarded as the most important one.
