Translation of abstract (English)

Proceedings of from the international symposium organized on the occasion of the 200th birthday anniversary of Józef Kremer (2006) by the Jagiellonian University’s Art History Institute and the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences.

This book brings together 24 articles on the life and work of Józef Kremer – an art historian, philosopher, aesthetician and psychologist – by scholars from Poland, Italy, Germany and Switzerland.

Kremer was a proponent of Hegelianism (later also its critic), and also the author of the first systematic treatise on aesthetics in Polish ("Letters from Kraków", 1843, 3 vols, 1855–1856). His "Journey to Italy" (5 vols., 1859–1864) was not only a popular lecture series on the history of art, but also – as was the case of Jacob Burckhardt’s work – a history of the author’s "inner soul", rich in philosophical and literary allusions. Kremer’s most important achievement in psychology was the systematic division of psychic phenomenons into the conscious and the unconscious (before Freud) as well as the treatment of anthropology as a science which probes the mutual relations between these two. By considering the act as the best source of information about a person, Kremer anticipated the position of Wilhelm Dilthey.
