Summary/Abstract: This essay is devoted to Kacper Pobłocki’s book Kapitalizm. Historia krótkiego trwania [Capitalism: A Short-Term History] (2017), which, in the author’s opinion, is the important and original outcome of an anthropological and historical analysis of capitalism, both in the global and local dimensions, and particularly in regard to the problems of contemporary Poland. Pobłocki questions a majority of the interpretations of capitalism’s history, while referring to long extant but little used historical, anthropological, and economic information. The text contains a presentation of Pobłocki’s ideas and a multithreaded discussion of the form and content of certain of his statements.
