Summary/Abstract: We present to our readers volume one of the hitherto dispersed articles by Katarzyna Olbrycht, a scholar renowned within and beyond pedagogical circles, who is the author of such works as Prawda, dobro i piękno w wychowaniu człowieka jako osoby [Truth, good, and beauty in upbringing a human being as a person] (2000) and O roli przykładu, wzoru, autorytetu i mistrza w wychowaniu osobowym [On the role of example, pattern, role model, and master in personal upbringing] (2007), which have become both an inspiration and a point of reference for theoreticians and practicioners of upbringing alike. The presented publication was initiated by Professor Olbrycht’s fomer students and present-day co-workers at the University of Silesia’s Institute of Cultural Education, which she founded and has lead for years. The present volume featuring articles previously printed in conference proceedings and academic journals may be organised along a continuum that stretches from the opening text “O roli zachwytu w rozwoju człowieka” (On the role of amazement in the development of a human being) to the closing one entitled “Współczesne pytania wokół relacji ‘mistrz-uczeń’” (The present dilemmas regarding the “master-apprentice” relationship), both delivered as inauguration lectures, the former in 1998, and the latter in 2008. Therefore, by collating this monograph, which is a testimony to the scholarly path of Katarzyna Olbrycht – we wish to emphasize the fact of bringing to the readers not only a book by a professional humanities scholar, but most of all, by a scholar who publicly spoke on and has been a witness to truth, good, and beauty.
