STEFFEN HUBER (Jagiellonian University in Krakow) The Professor and Head of the Department of Polish Philosophy at the Institute of Philosophy, Jagiellonian University in Krakow; the principal investigator in the project “Polonica Philosophica Orientalia” (NPRH grant). Main interests: Polish and East European philosophy of the Early Modern period, especially political thought and metaphysics.

The rule of law in the philosophical discourse of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth after 1569

Abstract: In the first part of my paper, I will give an overview of political philosophy in the Renaissance period. The Commonwealth and its components, i.e. the Kingdom of Poland, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Kozak state and various other communities, viewed themselves as republics. The pivotal aspect of this republican model was the idea that the law stood above everyone, including the monarch (in Polonia lex est rex). Thus, the republic was monarchic, and the monarchy was republican. Such philosophers as Andreas Fricius Modrevius, Laurentius Goslicius, Andreas Volanus, August Rotundus and Aaron Alexander Olizarovius wrote comprehensive works on this specific construction. In the second part, the Polish-Lithuanian model of the rule of law appears as a juridical project based on contract theory in the works of Paulus Vladimiri, Petrus Roisius and Sigismund Lauxmin. Finally, in the third part, I will refer to sources presently being prepared for the edition: lectures on politics held at the University of Vilnius around 1690. I will argue that the regionally specific model of the Renaissance republic lasted even until 1720. Accordingly, I will close with remarks on the chronology

of Renaissance and Modernity in the region of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The paper will include a short presentation of the joint Polish, Lithuanian, Belarusian and Ukrainian research project “Polonica Philosophica Orientalia” (2018-2024) which has made a part of the textual sources accessible.

BARBARA KASZOWSKA-WANDOR (Jagiellonian University in Krakow) PhD, a member of the Department of the History of Old Polish Literature, an editor of “Wielogłos” (Polylogue), a journal published at the Faculty of Polish Studies. Research interests: the philosophy of literature, with emphasis on the transformations of humanistic anthropology and the philosophy of culture, posthumanism, and changing concepts of commonality.

Early modern protreptic discourse in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth

Abstract: The paper focuses on the relationship between literary modes of expression and philosophical persuasion in multilingual, multicultural and multiconfessional writings of the early modern Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. It departs from the conventional approach, which aims to identify the philosophical sources of literary texts. Instead, it examines the specific rhetorical literary forms, developed as the new media of philosophical argumentation and for a long time treated as the margins of both: philosophy (also theology) and literature. In this context, I apply the broad concept of protreptic discourse, which has gained popularity in new academic research. As I argue, the dialogical and agonistic potential of protreptic tradition is creatively negotiated in 16th-century literature of the Commonwealth.
