    Stoic pragmatist ethics in the time of pandemic.Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński - 2021 - Ethics and Bioethics (in Central Europe) 11 (1-2):82-91.
    The present paper is a response, of sorts, to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID) and lockdown that we all must face. We have an idea of what doctors, nurses, teachers, among many of the other professions, do for the general public, but one may ask whether there is something substantial that philosophers and ethicists can offer in these circumstances. The thesis of this paper is that the stoic attitude towards times of trouble and the pragmatist way of finding (...)

    Philosophy in Digital Culture: Images and the Aestheticization of the Public Intellectual’s Narratives.Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński - 2020 - Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture 4 (1):23-37.
    The present paper deals with the problem of the digital-culture-public-philosophy as a possible response of those philosophers who see the need to face the challenges of the Internet and the visual culture that constitutes an important part of the Internet cultural space. It claims that this type of philosophy would have to, among many other things, modify and broaden philosophers’ traditional mode of communication. It would have to expand its textual, or mainly text-related, communication mode into the aesthetic and visual (...)

    This volume is composed of extended versions of selected papers presented at an international conference held in June 2011 at Opole University—the seventh in a series of annual American and European Values conferences organized by the Institute of Philosophy, Opole University, Poland. The papers were written independently with no prior guidelines other than the obvious need to address some aspect of George Herbert Mead’s work. While rooted in careful study of Mead’s original writings and transcribed lectures and the historical context (...)

    Stoic Pragmatism, its Target Audiences, and the Humanization of Digital Communication.Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński - 2024 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 59 (3):313-331.
    Abstract:The term stoic pragmatism was coined by John Lachs for a theory and practice of the good life in individual, social, and cultural contexts. My intention is not only to promote this interesting idea but also to develop it at some points. In the first instance, I propose something that we may call digital-culture public intellectual as a way for stoic pragmatists to be more visible with their teachings nowadays. Indirectly, and at least to some degree, stoic pragmatists may contribute (...)

    Persuasion and Compulsion in Democracy.Jacquelyn Ann K. Kegley & Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński (eds.) - 2013 - Lexington.
    This collection of essays focuses on the roles that coercion and persuasion should play in contemporary democratic political systems or societies. A number of the authors advocate new approaches to this question, offering various critiques of the dominant classical liberalism views of political justification, freedom, tolerance and the political subject. A major concern is with the conversational character of democracy. Given the problematic and ambiguous status of the many differences present in contemporary society, the authors seek to alert us to (...)

    Persuasion and Compulsion in Democracy.Jacquelyn Kegley & Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński (eds.) - 2013 - Lexington Books.
    The book presents a variety of philosophical and socio-political perspectives related to the relationship between persuasion and compulsion in democracy. It meets the need of the present time, in America and in Europe, to re-read and discuss the basic assumptions of democracy and the role of individual within it in the context of institutional persuasions that can become factual compulsions for other institution and, first of all, individuals.

    Angus Kerr-Lawson, abulensean pragmatism, and the problem of values.Krzysztof Skowronski - 2009 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 45 (4):pp. 532-542.
    This paper deals with Angus Kerr-Lawson's interpretation of George Santayana's philosophy of values. I claim that Kerr-Lawson reads Santayana correctly; however, as regards axiology, he reads Santayana literally and misses Santayana's engagement with it. Santayana's engagement with the philosophy of values is clearly seen when we use axiological terms and problematics in approaching his thought.

    Beyond Aesthetics and Politics: "Philosophical and Axiological Studies on the Avant-Garde, Pragmatism, and Postmodernism".Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński (ed.) - 2013 - Editions Rodopi.
    The book presents five philosophical and axiological studies devoted to the relationship between aesthetics and politics. It shows this relationship throughout the works of some avant-gardists, pragmatists, and postmodernists. It is also a voice in the discussion about the meaning of the fine arts and aesthetics in the context of the political aims and norms. This voice claims that the political dimension of art and aesthetics should be studied much more seriously than it has been till today, and needs more (...)

    Cultural diversity and clashing narratives about national culture: A Central European stoic pragmatist perspective.Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński - 2022 - Ethics and Bioethics (in Central Europe) 12 (3-4):212-220.
    It is amazing how polarizing and, at the same time, ahistorical narratives can be heard about the problems discussed, especially in Anglophone countries in recent times, and on social media: identity policy, cultural policy, racism, patriotism, white privilege, patriarchy, sexism, gender, and others. Stoic pragmatism is not in agreement with the most recent populism and neo-tribalistic class of narratives, which highlight division and the polarization of groups of people against other groups of people as the very axis of argumentation. Even (...)

    Democratic values in the aesthetics of classic American pragmatism.Krzysztof Skowroński - 2011 - Human Affairs 21 (4):335-346.
    In the present paper an interpretation of the political dimension of pragmatic aesthetic reflection is proposed. The interconnection between politics and aesthetics in three classic American pragmatists: William James (1842–1910), John Dewey (1859–1952), and George Herbert Mead (1863–1931) is evoked. The author claims that by emphasizing the role of democratic values in philosophy and life, the classic American pragmatists encroach upon the field of the arts and aesthetics. Their emphasis put upon individual activity, free expression of thoughts, plurality of the (...)

    The avant-garde’s visual arts in the context of Santayana’s idea of vital liberty.Krzysztof Skowroński - 2012 - Human Affairs 22 (2):142-160.
    In the present paper, the author looks at the political dimension of some trends in the visual arts within twentieth-century avant-garde groups (cubism, expressionism, fauvism, Dada, abstractionism, surrealism) through George Santayana’s idea of vital liberty. Santayana accused the avant-gardists of social and political escapism, and of becoming unintentionally involved in secondary issues. In his view, the emphasis they placed on the medium (or diverse media) and on treating it as an aim in itself, not, as it should be, as a (...)

    The Individual and the Community in Stoic Pragmatism.Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński - 2023 - Ruch Filozoficzny 79 (4):49-64.
    The present paper outlines John Lachs’s idea of stoic pragmatism and develops its important part that is the relation between the individual and the community. In his project, Lachs reduces the whole tradition of Stoic philosophy to its later, Roman version and tries to link it with the philosophical tradition of American pragmatism (especially William James, John Dewey, and George Santayana, who is close to pragmatism at some points) hoping that it is possible for these two to "enrich and complete (...)

    Values and Powers: Re-reading the Philosophical Tradition of American Pragmatism.Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński (ed.) - 2009 - BRILL.
    This book shows how much and in what sense values are related to powers and powers are related to values in American pragmatism. The proposed re-reading of American pragmatism will facilitate a novel understanding of it as a philosophical movement and, by showing its truly humanistic, democratic, and pro-social character, the stronger impetus for current rethinking of values is being provided.

    This chapter examines Richard Rorty's conception of what it means to be a public intellectual in the modern world and how this conception is related to his pragmatist approach to philosophy. It also discusses the influence that this conception and approach had on Central Europe. In doing so, it outlines for the first time, and in some detail, the close contact that Rorty had, through his books, and more personally through conferences, lectures, and seminars, with philosophers in countries such as (...)
