Before the WW I, Florian Znaniecki wanted to be first of all philosopher. Summary of these quests is a book 'Cultural Reality', published in Chicago in 1919, that presents principles of the so-called culturalism. The realm of values and the realm of culture are main subjects of human experience. They become autonomic, i.e. cannot be traced back neither to psychological groundings nor to sociological ones. Znaniecki thought that his system of cultural relativism perfectly described contemporary reality.
