Summary/Abstract: Human life may be subjected to explanation, interpretation, reconstruction and even to constructing, from a certain point of view. In recent years a biography, both as a subject (the account of one’s life) and as a methodological orientation or a method of academic research, has been experiencing a renaissance. This, in turn, led the author to study biographies of researchers, in particular, to transpose their achievements to modern cultural resources of, especially, pedagogical sub-disciplines. According to the author it is not enough and to merely explore the institution of the university (or any other attended by high-school) or the social processes and mechanisms affecting such institutions. Among distinct advantages of a biography is also the fact that it provides personalized scientific facts which can only be known through empathy and reflexive astuteness, thus clearing the way to much-desired humanisation of learning. As a general rule, a biography portrays a person’s life story, in close association with his or her personality. This may prove useful in the interpretation of the life stories of researchers presented in this study. It may also be helpful when one undertakes to transpose the experiences of researchers to the system of views, beliefs and values of the recipients of their academic output. The thoughts contained in this book/work studied lead to numerous conclusions related (but not restricted) to the academic activity of the examined researchers.1 Biographies of researchers, irrespective of the epoch in which they lived, reflect specific features, tendencies and even regularities of their functioning.
