Świętochowski wobec demonów przyrody i historii

Świętochowski and Brzozowski’s Dilemmas

The article is a fragment of the chapter of the book about Stanisław Brzozowski. The author presents Aleksander Świętochowski as a polemicist, but also a precursor of Brzozowski if it comes to thinking about modernity. Similar relation of both of them towards works by Henryk Sienkiewicz is an interesting example of a dialogue between the critics from two generations and formations: a positivist “Prawda” and a modernistic “Głos”. However, the author explains why despite the fact that both thinkers had a similar, critical attitude to tradition, their approaches could not meet.
