On Quentin Skinner in “Przegląd Polityczny”


In the latest issue of “Przegląd Polityczny” (“The Political Review”) you can find a transcript of the debate between Quentin Skinner and Michael Freeden. The debate took place in October 2014 at the Faculty of Political Science and Journalism, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.

The transcript is acompanied by essays presenting the profiles of the debaters. Łukasz Dulęba writes about Michael Freeden, while I outline a career of Quentin Skinner. The latter essay, entitled “Quentin Skinner: historian and context”, is available (in Polish) on the website of “Przegląd Polityczny”.

It is difficult to overemphasise the importance of “Przegląd Polityczny” in introducing the most important political philosophers and thinkers to Polish readers. I must confess that I am very proud and happy to get my text published in that particular journal.
