Summary/Abstract: The focus in "Brzozowski’s Nietzsche. A Reconnaissance" is the presentation of the relationships between philosophical-critical papers by Stanisław Brzozowski and Friedrich Nietzsche’s intellectual potential. For the Polish critic, the philosophy of the author of "Unfashionable Observations" becomes the problem of philosophical and aesthetic awareness whose influence voices on the level of ideology and style throughout his entire writings, though in an evolving manner. The text is not a systematic analysis of the relationships between the texts of the two philosophers in question; rather Nietzsche’s texts were treated selectively and synchronically and associations with Brzozowski seen here are of various kinds (from acceptance through keeping a distance to negation). Their power, which is of crucial importance, is proved by the degree of appropriation, interiorisation and reading of Nietzschean investigations in the perspective of Brzozowski’s own interests and reflections.
