Artykuł analizuje podejście Leo Straussa do filozofii politycznej rozumianej jako powrót do naturalnego i zdroworozsądkowego pojmowania spraw politycznych. Koncentruje się na takich Straussowskich kategoriach jak życie polityczne, filozofia i natura. Strauss zwraca uwagę na trudności związane z naukowym rozumieniem „tego, co polityczne” i problemy dotyczące relacji nauki i etyki. Filozofia polityczna jest próbą ponownego odkrycia naturalnej i zdroworozsądkowej perspektywy życia politycznego. Niniejszy tekst jest zarysem Straussowskiej diagnozy.

The author of the article draws attention to the growing popularity of ,,new generation series” in Poland. He focuses primarily on the analysis of the series Raven. Whispers are heard after dark, which takes place in Podlasie region. Adamski analyzes this series in terms of how nature is portrayed in it and what role it plays, relative to the main character and the main plot of the narrative. In his analyzes, he starts from the metaphor of the Roman deity - Janus, and also refers to the aesthetics of Nordic Noir, which had a significant impact on the development of the Polish crime series. However, while the message of Scandinavian series has often been associated with social criticism, the narratives, whose places of action are located in the Polish province (a very important role of nature), more often have a metaphysical, ecological or mythological dimension.

Getting Lost in La Foresta-Radice-Labirinto: Calvino and the Pedagogy of Landscape for Children

The paper examines La Foresta-Radice-Labirinto (1981), a fairy tale which is one of Italo Calvino’s latest and lesser known works. In what can be regarded as his testament, Calvino looks back on and revives the ecological commitment of his literary production and his attention to the complex relationship between nature and culture, which has been a prominent leitmotif of his writings (from The Baron in the Trees to The Cloud of Smog, and from the adventures of Marcovaldo to the Invisible Cities). The paper offers a detailed symbological and eco-critical analysis of the text, in order to examine an ‘ecology of mind’ as developed by Calvino, invariably sensitive to hybridisation and to the ongoing and often difficult relation between historical and environmental mutations. In doing so, the paper lists and explores the construction of images-icons and figures-types that make up what Calvino calls ‘a pedagogy of imagination’. The paper focuses on Calvino’s dedication to education through fairy tales as a primary form of experience, capable of conveying universal messages to a young readership, and on his longing for an authentic exposure to the environment, where getting lost means finding oneself and where chaos leads to a new order, founded on an ethical search for a more harmonious union of city, human beings and nature.

The Popularisation of Knowledge about Nature and Ecology: The Nasza Księgarnia Publishing House and Its Publications

The article presents a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the repertoire of Nasza Księgarnia, a more than 100-year-old Polish publishing house specialising in children’s and youngadult literature, in terms of informational books on nature and ecology. The study covers the years 2011–2021, as a clear increase in the number of such publications was observable all over the world in this period. The main trends in the development of informational books published by Nasza Księgarnia, their dominant themes, and their prevalent genres are identified. Two books on endangered and threatened species are qualitatively analysed by means of Nina Goga’s method as illustrative of the releases and trends under study.
