    Kwartalnik "Kronos" jest jednym z ostatnich przyczółków tej humanistyki, której poświęciłem moje życie przyczółków przed napierającym zewsząd morzem chamstwa, cynizmu i bezeceństwa.

"Kronos” quarterly was established in 2007 as a project of a particular generation of philosophers all of whom started their studies around the transitional year 1989. “Kronos” soon became the largest philosophical journal in Poland. It is a new voice in Polish philosophy.
Poland at the turn of the 21st century was and is an inspiring place for thinkers; it is an interesting vantage point for observing and studying human nature. It is a place which saw genocide and two murderous experiments – the Nazi and the Soviet – the aim of which was to create a new type of human being. A philosopher brought up in Warsaw is living in a city destroyed by Hitler and rebuilt by Stalin.
The place and the time when we started studying philosophy influenced our choices and interests. Perhaps a philosopher is nothing but an emanation of the place and time which shaped him. These factors no doubt explain our interest in Hegel and Marx whom we have read through the lenses provided by religious messianists (Fyodorov) or 20th century prophets of the apocalypse (Kojève and Witkacy). The spirit of time and place prompted us also to study the Classics, to return in thought to Greece where – influenced by Heidegger and Nietzsche – we saw the eternally recurring point, where all history ends and every history begins.

Ray Brassier interviewed by Marcin RychterI am a nihilist because I still believe in truth

  • 04 marca 2011

KRONOS: 'Nihilism' is one of the most ambiguous philosophical concepts. What is your idea of it? Would you consider yourself a nihilist? Does nihilism totally exclude religion? What about Meillassoux's nihilistic faith fuelled by the inexistence of God?

Grahame Lock, Francesco Maiolo - Kronos 3/2010La Guerre Totale Industrielle: Notes on Management as A Global Fundamentalism

  • 23 lutego 2011

In recent interviews with Philippe Petit and Alain Rubens, Pierre Legendre has once again illustrated what we consider to be the far-reaching significance of his work, not only for the scholarly study of mankind-in-history (or history-as-it-creates-and-recreates-mankind) but for the understanding of the unprecedented urgent and practical problems now confronting western societies...

Interview with Bruce Fink by Izabela MichalskaA psychoanalyst has to speak as an oracle

  • 11 maja 2010

Lacanian theory is used to explain culture, as Žižek and Salecl do, for example. Do you think it is a key to understanding contemporary culture?
I’m very suspicious, myself, of taking concepts that were developed in the clinical setting for transformative psychotherapeutic work and trying to apply them everywhere else. People are sometimes confused: they see that Lacan talks about paintings, films, and artworks of different kinds and they think that Lacan is therefore applying his own concepts to the artworks. It’s the exact opposite—he is looking to art to inspire him to develop concepts to use in his clinical work...

Arkadiusz Górnisiewicz Modernity and What Has Been Lost. Considerations on the Legacy of Leo Strauss:
A Summary

  • 03 sierpnia 2009

Leo StraussThe conference Modernity and What Has Been Lost. Considerations on the Legacy of Leo Strauss was held at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków on June 4-5, 2009. The conference made an attempt to identify Strauss’s intellectual background and these problems which may be found in the foreground of his thought. The repudiation of a modern idea of homogenous, universal state (considered as an illegitimate synthesis of Jerusalem and Athens, i.e., the claims of Reason and Revelation) proves to be a pivotal point of his views. The world we live in, molded by science and historical relativism, may be described as hostile to human dignity or perfection, or abhorrent to those who love search for wisdom. Straussian teaching consisted in the steady effort to reopen the quarrel between the Ancient and the Moderns, as well as it refers to esoteric way of writing practiced by the most profound thinkers of the past which has been apparently forgotten in the last three centuries...

Un Dieu vengeur a exaucé les voeux de cette multitude
Charles Baudelaire, Salon de 1859

In his recently published tour-de-force The Reformation of the Image, Joseph Leo Koerner discusses an early panel painting by Lucas Cranach the Elder. The painting, a crucifixion from 1503 now in Munich, is unlike any Cranach would later paint on the same subject. Cranach presents a radically oblique view of Christ that introjects a viewer into represented space, specifying one’s position “through the contingency of forms beheld as if at this specific place and time.” By manipulating point-of-view, the artist makes available the “subjective perception of an eyewitness” to the event depicted. The painting suggests a contingency involved in viewing Christ, as if one were to happen upon the scene... [more]
