This subsequent volume of Artes Liberales Debates presents a collection of essays based on the session which took place on 9–11 December 2013 at the Artes Liberales College, University of Warsaw. The debate was a key part of a series of meetings, organised by the “Artes Liberales” Institute Foundation within the programme Academia in Public Discourse: Poland-Russia. Its initiators conceived the session as the debate of a successive similar meetings.
The essay about Olga Freidenberg, an outstanding Russian scholar, who was a theoretician of myth and culture of the calibre of Claude Lévi-Strauss and Ernst Cassirer. Her proud stance defied the Stalinist regime of crime and repression. She left behind twelve monographs, unpublished in life, twenty articles and the immensely valuable memoirs Race of Life (which counts 2,300 pages of typescript).
