Polish Philosophy

Philosophy in Poland has developed largely along the same lines as its Western European counterpart. Yet it also has many aspects which are peculiar to itself. Historically, the founding of the University of Cracow in 1364 marks the formal beginning of Polish philosophy as an academic discipline: prior to this, philosophywas taught at numerous smaller schools, and many Poles were educated abroad, which accounts for the early influence of Western scholars and literature.
