We focus on places and people it mentions, on the sounds we hear, on the personal reactions to the lyrics, the music and the imagery it evokes. We often think...

Динамика культурных кодов и проблема агнонимичности в межкультурной коммуникации

Marine Aroshidze

Fenomen przekraczania tabu seksualności w kontekście norm społecznych

Magdalena Zubiel-Kasprowicz

Olga Letka-Spychała
The main aim of this paper is to answer the question which appears in its title. In order to do so, I analyse the mind style of the eponymous character from Boris Akunin’s book The Decorator (1999).

Currently interest in Slavic and sometimes pagan culture is undergoing a Renaissance phase. It seems reasonable to remind that also in enlightenment writers willingly reached for these threads, reinterpreting them. Among them, it is worth paying attention to the tragedy Krakus of Jan Chodźko, preserved in fragments, which was created in 1804, during a period of intensified dramatic activity, initiated by a competition announced in 1803 by the Society of Friends of Sciences for a tragedy based on historical...

Barok na szyldach. Historia nazewnictwa firmowego w Polsce po 1945 roku

Jacek Lindner
Summary: It can be taken for granted that the names of Polish companies quite clearly indicate the era in which they operate. Enterprises were called differently in the years 1944-1970, when marketing was considered both as an obstacle and economically not necessary. In 1971- 1989, the naming of Polish companies was something intermediate between recognition of marketing principles and bureaucratic principles of a centrally planned economy. After 1990, many Polish companies try to be as...
