The scientific goals of the project


The main goal of the project is the creation of new possibilities of inter and trans-disciplinary collaboration between European academic organisations in the field of the history of ideas. Therefore solid methodological instruments have to be crafted. At the same time, the three main phases of the development of European thought have to be highlighted: the heritage of the democratic states of the European Union reaching to the democracies outside of the old continent as well as the Antique, Middle ages and the eighteenth century in particular, that has influenced our contemporary thought. All eyes  turned to Poland, old great power of the sixteenth century as it occupied the Union's presidency. Nowadays, we discover the country, its language, and not only its history but its noteworthy contributions to the European humanism again. This project is concerned with raising the polish tradition of historical considerations as well as developing the history of ideas. 

This project is funded by the "National Program for the Humanities" of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Poland.
