The Corner

Leszek Kolakowski

A reader informs me that a search of the NRO archives with argument

“kolakowski” turns up one single reference, by me here.

This is a bit shameful. Leskek Kolakowski’s MAIN CURRENTS OF MARXISM was a

key text in alerting me to what the commies were up to. It is a brilliant,

invaluable book. The Library of Congress has now awarded Prof. Kolakowski

the first Kluge Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Humanities and Social

Sciences. A great man, a

great warrior for freedom.
