The paper 'Professor Baczko Reads Kant' is devoted to remembrance of academic work of Professor Bronislaw Baczko who focused on the problems of classical German philosophy. The remembrance focuses on reading of writings by Immanuel Kant, which was the subject of studies and discussions during seminars in the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in the 1960s. These meetings gathered known personalities in Polish philosophy, engaged them in a discussion, influenced their beliefs and attitudes. The paper devoted to Professor Baczko stresses his role in stimulating intellectual life based on studies on main issues of epochal and critical significance that stemmed from the German critical philosophy. Majority of discussion threads revolves around decisive issues such as the consciousness of human finiteness. The problem of relation of the human being to the Absolute, of finiteness and transitoriness to permanence and eternity comes to the fore.
