Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to the presentation of an original conception of civilizational pluralism of Feliks Konieczny, a Polish historiosopher of the period between WWI and WW2. The text considers two main ideas of the doctrine of the multiplicity of civilizations - the conception of the civilizational pluralism of mankind as well as a related philosophy of deeds. In this context Koneczny's theory appears as a specific anticipation of Huntington's thought regarding civilizational clashes.
