  4. Leszek Kolakowski: La importancia de seguir pensando lo irresoluble

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gómez, Carlos

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available After the presentation and the biographical outline, a few core aspects of Kolakowski’s work are taken into consideration: the criticism of Marxism, the interest in religion and the metaphysical questioning. His connoisseurship of classical sources and of the leading trends in present-day philosophy, together with his follow-up of the controversies of our time, account for Kolakowski’s philosophical cosmopolitanism, notwithstanding the independence of his thinking, nourished by tensions whose upholding —rather than the unilateral positioning by one stance or the other— is of the essence. Even when a social order and a system of thought cannot be called upon to solve our questions, the thinking that takes them into account, instead of endeavouring in waiving them, has the advantage of showing us why, even if we cannot unravel them painstakingly, it is important for us to keep posing them.

    Tras la presentación y un esbozo biográfico, se consideran algunos ejes de la obra de Kolakowski: la crítica del marxismo, el interés por la religión y el cuestionamiento metafísico. El profundo conocimiento de los clásicos y de las principales tendencias de la filosofía contemporánea, así como el seguimiento de los debates nuestro tiempo, hacen de Kolakowski un pensador cosmopolita, a pesar de la independencia de su pensamiento, nutrido de tensiones que es preciso saber mantener en vez de decantarse unilateralmente por uno de los polos de las mismas. Aunque no podamos esperar un orden social y un sistema filosófico que logren resolver nuestros interrogantes, el pensamiento que los considera, en vez de procurar cancelarlos, tiene la ventaja de mostrarnos por qué, pese a que no podamos resolverlos de manera cabal, es importante que nos los sigamos planteando.

    Full Text Available The article is an attempt to pinpoint the areas of Ludwig Wittgenstein aesthetic thought, in which he is crossing the borders principally imposed upon the method and the language of his philosophy. I am directing my attention to metaphysical and mystical motifs of his reflection devoted to aesthetics, the essence of art and the essence of reality. I wish to discuss this issue based on the texts of Arthur C. Danto containing analysis of chosen notions of Wittgenstein’s aesthetic investigations. Additionally in this matter I am appealing to appropriate theses of Leszek Sosnowski and Wojciech Sady, concerning above issues.

    Full Text Available The market share and the development of intermodal haulages, they are still at a very low level. It amounts in total goods transported by rail to 2,5% - 3%. The major reason for this situation is lack of coherent method for intermodal network designing. Such method should take into consideration strong relations between transport users, transport service providers, so the micro scale, as well as the regions where they are operating, so the meta scale.The aim of this paper is to present method which makes possible elimination of existing barriers in intermodal transport. The proposed method, for the sake of relations between actors involved in intermodal transport organisation, refers to multi-agent system concept. This system assumes coordinated actions in favour of concrete problem solution with support of cooperating agents, that is, in described paper, actors connected with intermodal transport.Paper presents results of the research project N509 398536, called: „Intermodal logistics network in Poland – concept of model solutions and implementation aspects” carried out by the Institute of Logistics and Warehousing under scientific leadership of professor Leszek Mindur.

    Full Text Available Live and travel. The metaphorical vision of life in the novel Non c’è dolcezza by Anilda Ibrahimi The essay, divided into two parts, aims to investigate the motif of journey in the novel Non c’è dolcezza by Anilda Ibrahimi, a migrant author of Albanian origin. The journey is considered mainly as a metaphor for the existence of the characters, who often seem to be puppets completely controlled by fate. These characters “travel” both together (Lila, Eleni and individually (Arlind, Andrea in order to determine their identity, realize the dreams which would let them feel happy and forget the problems faced in their everyday lives. Analysis shows that happiness is often impossible because human life is full of negative factors which provoke an existential failure; the message transmitted by Ibrahimi is very pessimistic. The theoretical basis of the article is constituted by the works of such scholars as Theodor Adorno, Giorgio Agamben, Henri Bergson, Roland Barthes, Sigmund Freud, Leszek Kołakowski, Julia Kristeva and Paul Ricoeur.

Materials and methods: The NPs were formulated by multiple-emulsion solvent-evaporation, and for enhancing BBB penetration, they were coated with polysorbate 80 (Ps80. We compared Ps80-coated and uncoated NPs for their toxicity, binding, and BBB penetration on primary rat brain capillary endothelial cell cultures and the rat brain endothelial 4 cell line. These studies were followed by in vivo studies for brain delivery of these NPs. Results: Results showed that neither Ps80-coated nor uncoated NPs caused significant opening of the BBB, and essentially they were nontoxic. NPs without Ps80 coating had more binding to endothelial cells compared to Ps80-coated NPs. Penetration studies showed that TIMP-1 NPs + Ps80 had 11.21%±1.35% penetration, whereas TIMP-1 alone and TIMP-1 NPs without Ps80 coating did not cross the endothelial monolayer. In vivo studies indicated BBB penetration of intravenously injected TIMP-1 NPs + Ps80. Conclusion: The study demonstrated that Ps80 coating of NPs does not cause significant toxic effects to endothelial cells and that it can be used to enhance the delivery of protein across endothelial cell barriers, both in vitro and in vivo. Keywords: PLGA nanoparticles, drug delivery, protein delivery, sustained release, brain delivery, BBB penetration, RBCEC culture

    Full Text Available L’article ci-joint présente d’une manière très succincte les premières années de pastorat militaire de la Pologne après la chute du communisme. Dans la période d’après 1947, les autorités communistes ont toléré l’existence de ce qui est resté du pastorat militaire, mais les prêtres militaires étaient obligés à collaborer avec la Section Politique – Educationnelle. L’ainsi nommée Doyenneté Générale de l’Armée Polonaise instituée par les autorités communistes était constitué de 31 églises de garnison et disposait de 45 prêtres. Quoique les officiers politiques ont déposé un effort substantiel pour athéiser l’Armée Polonaise, l’effet n’a pas été celui espéré, mais, au contraire, un superficiel. Une fois avec la nomination par le pape Jean Paul II le 31 janvier 1991 du prêtre Sławoj Leszek Głódź comme Evêque de l’Ordinariat militaire en Pologne, ont fini les 50 années d’existence de l’Ordinariat et de l’Evêque militaire dans la structure de l’Eglise Catholique et des forces armées polonaises. Les premières décisions prises par l’évêque Głódź ont été des actes de législation, des dénominations personnelles et la constitution de la structure pastorale militaire en Pologne. Cette expérience é été utile, aussi, à l’Eglise orthodoxe et évangélique qui, ultérieurement, ont créé des structures semblables. L’article présente, aussi, le rôle du pape Jean Paul II dans la reconstitution du pastorat militaire en Pologne.NB : l’Ordinariat militaire est une structure ecclésiastique semblable à un évêché qui se préoccupe des cadres de l’armée. Dans l’Eglise catholique, il y a plus 30 Ordinariats militaires.

None of the subjects in the control group was a prisoner either at a concentration camp or at any other prison or detention facility.Results: Multimorbidity affected mainly the central nervous system (CNS. Five years after leaving a camp, CNS dysfunctions were observed in 66% of former prisoners. Skeletal (42.4% and cardiovascular system (34.4% dysfunctions were the second and third most frequent dysfunctions. Thirty years after leaving a camp, the most prevalent coexisting conditions were also found within the CNS (80%, cardiovascular system (58.33%, and skeletal system (55%. Five and 30 years after leaving a camp, multiorgan lesions were found in 21.6% and 60% of survivors, respectively. Multimorbidity was more frequent in a group of prisoners who underwent the state of apathy and depression or who had been incarcerated longer than 24 months. The rate of CNS diseases was four times higher, and the rate of cardiovascular diseases or skeletal system dysfunctions was two times higher, in the study group after 30 years of leaving a camp compared with the control group

These metabolites can modify the properties of the proteins, thereby affecting cell function, which is a possible explanation for the mechanism of immunosuppressive agents' toxicity. In our study, we evaluated the effect of two immunosuppressive strategies on protein expression in the kidneys of Wistar rats. Fragments of the rat kidneys were homogenized after cooling in liquid nitrogen and then dissolved in lysis buffer. The protein concentration in the samples was determined using a protein assay kit, and the proteins were separated by two-dimensional electrophoresis. The obtained gels were then stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue, and their images were analyzed to evaluate differences in protein expression. Identification of selected proteins was then performed using mass spectrometry. We found that the immunosuppressive drugs used in popular regimens induce a series of changes in protein expression in target organs. The expression of proteins involved in drug, glucose, amino acid, and lipid metabolism was pronounced. However, to a lesser extent, we also observed changes in nuclear, structural, and transport proteins' synthesis. Very slight differences

    Full Text Available The frontiers of identity, and the identity of frontiers The essay discusses the relationship between group identities (especially national and the notion of territory and its symbolic significance in the creation of the idea of community. The author examines possible contexts that connect the frontiers of identity with the identities of national state borders, as well as ways in which these connections become symbolic, using the example of the recent plane crash tragedy in Smoleńsk. In the final part of the essay the author refers to Leszek Kołakowski’s notion of myth in order to justify the thesis that each nation (also in the first decades of the 21th century is always a mythical community that is being constantly reactivated through current political and ideological actions.   Granice tożsamości i tożsamość granic Artykuł omawia kwestie związków tożsamości zbiorowych, zwłaszcza narodowych, z pojęciem własnego terytorium i jego symbolicznego znaczenia dla budowania dla wyobrażeń wspólnotowych. Na przykładzie tragedii katastrofy samolotu pod Smoleńskiem autor artykułu pokazuje możliwe konteksty, w jakich tytułowe granice tożsamości wiążą się z tożsamością granic narodowego terytorium oraz w jaki sposób zaznacza się symbolicznie ten nierozerwalny związek. W końcowej partii artykułu autor odwołuje się do koncepcji mitu Leszka Kołakowskiego, aby uzasadnić tezę, że każdy naród, także w pierwszych dekadach XXI wieku, jest zawsze wspólnotą mityczną, która nieustannie się reaktywuje również w kontekście działań politycznych i ideologicznych.

    Full Text Available Anetta Lasek-Bal, Przemyslaw Puz, Zofia KazibutowskaStroke Unit, Department of Neurology, Medical University of Silesia, Professor Leszek Giec Upper Silesian Medical Centre, Katowice, PolandIntroduction: Hemostasis is affected by interactions between physiological processes, including those connected with the coagulation system, whose essence is converting fibrinogen into fibrin. The role of factor VIII (FVIII consists in activating factor X, which directly participates in the generation of thrombin, which is able to produce stable fibrin, which in turn forms blood clots. There are divergent opinions regarding the significance of high levels of FVIII in stroke pathogenesis.Aim: The aim of our study was to evaluate FVIII activity in individuals with cryptogenic stroke in order to determine a potential relationship between it and cerebral ischemia.Material and methods: Nine patients suffering with stroke were used in this study: six women and three men aged 49–63 years. In all of the patients, the presence of known and potential risk factors for stroke had been excluded during previous diagnostic procedures. These patients accounted for 1.2% of the 719 people who suffered a stroke and were hospitalized in 2011 at the Stroke Unit. FVIII activity was examined in each of the nine qualified subjects within 1–2 months of the occurrence of stroke (the first test and repeated (the second test in five patients with abnormal results obtained from the first examination.Results: Increased activity of FVIII was found in 5 out of 9 patients. In patients with abnormal results, elevated FVIII was found in follow-up examinations in the 8th–10th month following stroke. Hemodynamic abnormalities in carotid or cerebral artery (presence of thrombus were found in 3 of the 5 patients with increased FVIII levels. In the first 24 hours following stroke the neurological state of patients with abnormal FVIII was worse than individuals with normal FVIII activity. The

Full list of localities and the number of persons speaking Lithuanian (as well as Polish, Belorussian, Russian Old Believers and Yiddish in mutual relations were arranged and discussed successively: uniform areas (Święciany 50 000, Orany 24 000, Puńsk–Sejny 8 200 mixed areas (Ejszyszki, Soleczniki, Werenów, Raduń 9 500, and linguistic islands (Opsa 2 200, Gierwiaty 4 000, Dziewieniszki 4 200, Łazduny 2 500, Wilno–Troki 900 and several dozen people in Zdzięcioł, altogether about 106 000 persons, who could speak or understand Lithuanian language. After the author’s death the materials have been supplemented by Professor Jan Safarewicz, but the whole has been prepared for publication by Leszek Bednarczuk.   Литовский языковой ареал в Польском государстве 1927–1933 В северо-восточных районах Польши в междувоенный период проживало литовское меньшинство, главным образом на этнических литовских землях. С течением времени обнаружилась тенденция к сокращению этого ареала. Pacceлeние и кoличecтвo литовского нacceлeния нa мecтах иccлeдовaл пoльcкий yчeный O. Хоминьски. Автор публикуемых материалов, Ольгерд Хоминьски, был профессором в Университете им. Стефана Батория в Вильнюсе. Умер в 1943 году, не окончив начатого труда. До
