Summary/Abstract: The basic diff erence of our language – and our entire mode of thought determined by it – has not made it easy for us to fit in the European cultural sphere.

Descartes, for example, won him over not only by the content of his thought, but also by his daring to break the several centuries-old convention of Latin in order to philosophise in French. That is why Apáczai Csere started to “magyarise” Latin words in the interest of “Hungarian philosophy”. Th is was not a success.
