Myopia is a salient feature of contemporary civilization. It inhibits rational comprehension and pollcles, particularly in countries lagging behind in civilizational change. This is a seminal diagnosis of contemporary Poland and it also explains the main intentions of the book.
We find philosophic considerations on predictability of human change in the future. Development of thinking on the "human predicamenf or, as the Authors prefers, on the "syndrome of global civilization crisis," is surveyed and lessons thereof analyzed.
Against the backdrop of global analysis, the historie and present problematique of Poland is considered, The Author places Poland's situation withln a wider geostrategic set up and draws conclusions thereof.
An important part of the book is devoted to problems of systemie transformations, which constitute the main concern of policy. The analysis is also carried out within a specific philosophical framework. The Author conlends that certain failures of transformation are due to new, dogmatic thinking, ignoring pragmatic rationality. This part of the book will be considered most interesting, though also controversial.
