In the interview entitled 'The prospects of research on Polish philosophical thought', professor Stanislaw Borzym, head of the department of modern and contemporary philosophy at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Science, speaks about the place of Polish philosophy in the scientific and intellectual life of Europe. He points out the importance of national self-knowledge, for which the construction of an ambitious educational program is indispensable, taking into account both philosophical research carried out in the world in general and native philosophy. According to him, there are three levels of research: history of philosophy sensu stricto, the history of ideas with a predominant philosophical factor and philosophical history without this factor. In his opinion the following problems can turn out to be important for Polish philosophical thought: calling more careful attention to axiological issues on the border of philosophical and political thought, research about the philosophical ambitions of Polish scientists and scholars, as well as the relation between outlook on life and philosophical convictions in the works of Polish writers, poets, and people of the arts. All of this must happen in an intellectual atmosphere of freedom and responsibility for the task entrusted to philosophers.
