In this review, the author is dealing with the 3-volume set of early philosophical writings of Leszek Kolakowski, a key-figure in the Warsaw School of the History of Ideas. They cover the period of the late 50s and 60s of the 20th century and include his philosophical, political, and religious papers, reviews, plays and poetry translations additional to his main works written in that time. The bibliography of his works until 1970 is also included. The author tries to analyse the main features of Kolakowski's philosophy (namely the incompatibility of values) taking into account the dramatic political events in Poland of that time.
