Aleksander Świętochowski

Aleksander Świętochowski

Aleksander Świętochowski (pseudonyms Poseł Prawdy [Apostle of Truth] and others; 18 January 1849 – 25 April 1938) was a Polish writer, educator, and philosopher of the Positivist period that followed the January 1863 Uprising .

He was widely regarded as the prophet of Polish Positivism. spreading in the Warsaw press the gospel of scientific inquiry. education. economic development. and equality of rights for all, without regard to sex, class, ethnic origin or beliefs. His was a nuanced vision, however, that took account of the shortcomings of human nature ; like H.G. Wells. he advocated that power in society be wielded by the most enlightened among its members.

Life

Świętochowski was a journalist, literary critic, historian and philosopher —a founder and the leading ideologist of Polish Positivism. [ 1 ] In 1871 he published in Przegląd Tygodniowy (The Weekly Review) a famous programmatic article of the Polish Positivists, "My i wy " ("We and You"). [ 2 ]

Świętochowski worked with many periodicals, including (1870–78) Przegląd Tygodniowy (The Weekly Review), [ 2 ] in 1876–78 as co-editor. In 1878–79 he edited the daily Nowiny (News); [ 1 ] when in 1882 it was bought by financier Stanisław Kronenberg. its new owner, purportedly on Świętochowski's recommendation, entrusted the editorship to Bolesław Prus. [ 3 ]

In 1881–1902 Świętochowski edited and published Prawda (The Truth), which he had founded. [ 1 ]

In 1881 he lost his little son. Unable to regain his equilibrium, in mid-February 1882, on the advice of Dr. Tytus Chałubiński. he went on a journey to Italy. He would recall in his Pamiętnik (Memoirs):

During my two-month journey, [Władysław] Smoleński stood in for me in editing Prawda ; and, in writing columns—[Bolesław] Prus. with whom, after the fading of the memory of [our] polemical skirmishes of the "Young Press" period, I shared a renewed mutual sympathy. [ 4 ]

In 1905 Świętochowski founded, and subsequently led, Stronnictwo Postępowo-Demokratyczne (the Progressive-Democratic Party), which after 1918 was somewhat aligned with the National Democratic Party. [ 1 ] He worked with the National Democrats in opposing socialism. but their nationalism and racism were alien to him, and the National Democrats never regarded him as one of their own. [ 5 ]

Świętochowski founded and was president of Towarzystwo Kultury Polskiej (the Polish Culture Society, 1906–13) and editor and publisher of its organ, Kultura Polska (Polish Culture). [ 1 ]

From 1912 until his death in 1938, Świętochowski lived in Gołotczyzna. a village 67 kilometers north of Warsaw. where he established intimate intellectual and personal ties with Aleksandra Bąkowska. As early as 1909, he had inspired the creation, in Gołotczyzna, of a home-economics school for village girls, established by Bąkowska; and three years later, an agriculture school for boys, called Bratne. He regarded these institutions as his greatest achievement in the realm of education. [ 6 ]

Świętochowski died at Gołotczyzna on 25 April 1938 and was buried in the cemetery at Sońsk. near Ciechanów .

His son Ryszard Świętochowski (Warsaw, 17 October 1882 – 1941, Auschwitz ) was an engineer, journalist and politician who supported Władysław Sikorski. and published many papers in the field of physics ; he died at Auschwitz Concentration Camp .

Views

As the leading ideologist and exponent of the latter-19th-century Polish philosophical and cultural movement known as "Polish Positivism ," Świętochowski was an uncompromising critic of outdated traditions and obscurantism, and a spokesman for the fostering of knowledge and education. [ 1 ]

A complement to this optimistic scientism was his reflections on the limitations of human nature ("Dumania pesymisty " ["Reflections of a Pessimist"], Przegląd Tygodniowy [The Weekly Review], 1876), which led him to contrast sage leaders with egotistic societal collectives. Over the years, this concern of his would recur in a number of his plays and stories. [ 1 ]

Czesław Miłosz describes him: "A brilliant man, a sharp, even violent, polemicist against the conservatives, accused by his adversaries of haughtiness. he edited the periodical Truth(Prawda). signing his articles 'Truth's [Apostle].'" [ 7 ]

As a creative writer [writes Miłosz], he cannot be accorded a very lofty position. He seemed even in his own day excessively cerebral; and his [play]s, for instance, are nothing but cold [pyrotechnics] of dialogues. Among his works, one of the most important is a two-volume [Brief History of Poland's Peasants ]. [ 5 ]

[Nevertheless, w]hile his literary creations have not withstood the test of time and are not among the living artistic works of Polish literature, he will remain in Polish culture the personality that most fully embodied the ideals of the age, the activist and journalist most representative of the period, "the Pope of Warsaw progressivism ," a tireless opponent of superstition and stupidity, the unmasker of patriotic and religious cant.

The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day by Terry Pratchett

The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day

A brilliant new Discworld story from Terry Pratchett. It's Wizards Vs Priests in a Battle for the Future of Roundworld

The fourth book in the Science of Discworld series, and this time around dealing with THE REALLY BIG QUESTIONS, Terry Pratchett'sMore A brilliant new Discworld story from Terry Pratchett. It's Wizards Vs Priests in a Battle for the Future of Roundworld

The fourth book in the Science of Discworld series, and this time around dealing with THE REALLY BIG QUESTIONS, Terry Pratchett's brilliant new Discworld story Judgement Day is annotated with very big footnotes (the interleaving chapters) by mathematician Ian Stewart and biologist Jack Cohen, to bring you a mind-mangling combination of fiction, cutting-edge science and philosophy.

Marjorie Dawe is a librarian, and takes her job -- and indeed the truth of words -- very seriously. She doesn't know it, but her world and ours -- Roundworld -- is in big trouble. On Discworld, a colossal row is brewing. The Wizards of the Unseen University feel responsible for Roundworld (as one would for a pet gerbil). After all, they brought it into existence by bungling an experiment in Quantum ThaumoDynamics. But legal action is being brought against them by Omnians, who say that the Wizards' god-like actions make a mockery of their noble religion. As the finest legal brains in Discworld (a zombie and a priest) gird their loins to do battle -- and when the Great Big Thing in the High Energy Magic Laboratory is switched on -- Marjorie Dawe finds herself thrown across the multiverse and right in the middle of the whole explosive affair.

As God, the Universe and, frankly, Everything Else is investigated by the trio, you can expect world-bearing elephants, quantum gravity in the Escher-verse, evolutionary design, eternal inflation, dark matter, disbelief systems -- and an in-depth study of how to invent a better mousetrap. Less

Sir Terry Pratchett sold his first story when he was thirteen, which earned him enough money to buy a second-hand typewriter. His first novel, a humorous fantasy entitled The Carpet People. appeared in 1971 from the publisher Colin Smythe.

Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld.
