Abstract

Wojna i wojsko, jak również całokształt zagadnień pochodnych, znajdowały się w polu zainteresowań badaczy dziejów – można stwierdzić – nieomal od początków rozwoju historiografii. Jest to w pełni zrozumiałe zważywszy na szeroki kontekst dziejowy tych dociekań. Nie chodzi przy tym wyłącznie o spektakularną wymowę wydarzeń typu: bitwy, postaci wybitnych wodzów, przykłady bohaterstwa itp., aczkolwiek one są najczęściej przedmiotem oglądu badaczy. Wojna i wojsko miały (i mają) znacznie szerszy kontekst. Oddziałują nie tylko na struktury państwa (prawne, geograficzne, społeczne) – w chwili jego kształtowania się (także przez cały okres dziejów), ale na jego ekonomikę, działania polityczne władzy, aktywność jego obywateli, wpływają także na kulturę danego społeczeństwa. Niniejszy artykuł odnosi się do wspomnianych zagadnień poruszanych przez historyków polskich na przestrzeni dziejów. Poczynając od pierwszych rozpraw o charakterze kronikarskim (historiografia gesta), poprzez dzieła z okresu Odrodzenia i Oświecenia, poprzez historiografię XIX stulecia (z jej specyfiką polegającą na analizie militarnych przyczyn upadku Polski), a kończąc na współczesnych dociekaniach nad istotą konfliktu zbrojnego w kontekście życia państwa i narodu.

Abstract

The papers deals with methodological questions of writing a general history of science. We start by defining the scope of general history of science and its relation to general history, followed by a discussion on recent trends in history and philosophy of science. We also examine the impact of the developments in the humanities since the 1970s on disciplines reflecting on science. The second part of the paper focuses on the approach of science and politics as resources for one other, developed by Mitchell Ash, to describing scientific changes in times of radical regime upheavals. We also discuss the intersection between current science and politics framing historians as engaged intellectuals.

Abstract

The article attempts to evaluate Polish historiography dealing with the early modern period, published since 1989, the date marking the political transition in Poland. The transition has affected the way in which history has been practised in recent years, with a clear alteration in the subjectmatters and topics dealt with. Political history and the history of towns/cities and the bourgeoisie are beyond the scope of this discussion and assessment.

Abstract

The paper considers the vision of the world and the person of Józef Kazimierz Plebański (1831–1897), the Warsaw historian, one of two Polish students of Leopold von Ranke. In my article, I analyse the essential categories and objects which structure his thinking about reality, such as liberty, Providence, moral laws, state, nation, and humanity. At the end, I try to compare the worldview of Plebański with the worldview of historicism.

Abstract

The defi nition of disease differs in various cultural and historical environments and is a part of the “vision of the world and of man”. In the modern era, one can speak about the successive changes in the ideals of science, including the medical sciences, designing subsequent modifi cations of the understanding of disease. Different possible approaches, cultural, anthropological, and medical, use distinct language and metaphors to present the concept of illness.

Abstract

The author raises questions concerning the phenomenon of manifestos in science and specifi c theses advanced by the authors of The History Manifesto. The fi rst question is whether a manifesto on the role of historiography in the contemporary world, calling for a revival of a certain seemingly bygone ideal of science, symbolised by the works of Fernand Braudel, can be the subject of scientifi c criticism at all. The second question is whether the diagnosis of a crisis in the role of history as an expert science is accurate, and whether its claims to this role are altogether valid in the modern world.
