Maciej Woźniczka: Idee czy ideologie? Znaczenie i wartość edukacji filozoficznej Częstochowa: Uniwersytet Humanistyczno-Przyrodniczy im. Jana Długosza, 2021, pp. 208.


Here we get an authored work, in which the meaning and value of philosophical education is thoroughly and multifaceted analyzed. This is done not only by considering the world of "pure ideas", which is reached with special attention in philosophy, but also in the context of - sometimes acrimonious - ideological disputes and moving to the meta-level: disputes about the meaning and value of ideology in the teaching of philosophy. Moreover, the inquiries conducted affirm and confirm the importance and value of philosophical education, and even undertake an apologia for the importance and value of philosophical education, which ideologies would like to appropriate. Maciej Wozniczka's book "Ideas or Ideologies? The Meaning and Value of Philosophical Education" is a work of diligent and long-term philosophical reflection and at the same time a work of - passionate - commitment to philosophical education in its many forms.  In the monograph "Ideas or ideologies? The Meaning and Value of Philosophical Education" its author does not shy away from addressing issues that are the subject of current - ongoing - public debates, which directly or more often indirectly relate to the meaning and value of philosophical education. Maciej Wozniczka's book largely avoids falling into the "journalistic current", since the Author adopts as basic the philosophical perspective of rightly distanced reflection, although his ideological choices (preferences) call for discussion, lest - in spite of his will - they turn into the imposition of some ideology.
