ISTVÁN BIBÓ'S POLITICAL ESSAYS

The Bronisław Geremek Centre Foundation is the initiator of the publication of a book by István Bibó (1911-1979) - the Hungarian historian, philosopher  and thinker. Titled Eseje polityczne (Political Essays) , the book was  edited by Jerzy Snopek. It   is the most extensive collection to date in Polish of writings by that eminent intellectual. 

 

In 2001 Bronisław Geremek wrote:  " Czeslaw Milosz  in Native Realm and  (…) István Bibó - the Hungarian political scientist,  one of the outstanding and magnificent figures in the Central European empire of thought, who has behind him years of imprisonment,  membership in the 1956 Hungarian  government and, most of all, long years of silence. Milosz and Bibó, independently of each other, have said that the  nations of Central Europe are characterized by a sense of the frailty of their national fates, a sense of impermanence and insecurity. Bibó once opined:  a Westerner is incapable of understanding this. When we wake at dawn we ask ourselves if we are still independent. This very peculiar trait  - the feeling of insecurity - is also something that unites the Visegrad Group  both as concerns aspirations  and the shaping of foreign policy " (Ustrój państwa a polityka zagraniczna, "Polski Przegląd Dyplomatyczny" 2011, no. 1 (1), p. 35).

 

The book has been issued by Universitas Publishers.
