Stanislaw Brzozowski considered Stanislaw Przybyszewski to be an important philosopher who was aware of the crisis European culture reached at the turn of the 19th and 20th century. Brzozowski wanted to create a new cultural consciousness, to see humanity as the active power and not the victim of biological or historical circumstances. In 1902, he begun to develop his own philosophy, taking Przybyszewski (and also Nietzsche and Avenarius) as a starting point. However, Brzozowski eventually realised that there is a fundamental philosophical disagreement between his project and Przybyszewski's views. The article confronts Przybyszewski's philosophy with its changing interpretation in Brzozowski.
