Weapons in the Shaft Graves of Mycenae: Aspects of the Relative Chronology of Circle A and B Burials
(Polska Akademia Nauk, 1994) Taracha, Piotr; Uniwersytet Warszawski
In recent times fast progress was made in excavations throughout the Aegean and, what has bearing on our subject, in studies on the so-called “Shaft Grave period" in particularl. Nevertheless, a spectacular concentration of Wealth in the Mycenae Grave Circles still remains a unique phenomenon in the whole Aegean area. The discussion about their cultural and historical implications and the chronological interconnections among graves has been animated ever since by both new finds from other sites and the analyses of the degree of Wealth within burials from Mycenae itself.

Magic and realism of the desert (The prose of Ibrāhīm al-Kawnī)
(Katedra Arabistyki i Islamistyki, Uniwersytet Warszawski, 1995) Machut-Mendecka, Ewa; Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Warsaw; Uniwersytet Warszawski
Many authors tried to explore the magic of the desert, but it was only the Libyan Ibrāhīm al-Kawnī who was able to introduce it to the literature on a larger scale. He was born in 1948, and began publishing in the 1970’s. Since that time a number of prose works appeared, mainly devoted to life in the desert.

The Dichotomy of Pirenne’s Theory on the Commercial Situation in the Mediterranean Regions during the Middle Ages
(Katedra Arabistyki i Islamistyki, Uniwersytet Warszawski, 1997) Nazmi, Ahmad; Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Warsaw; Uniwersytet Warszawski
Pre-Islamic history directly revolved around two main political and economical powers, namely the Byzantine Empire covering Europe, Africa, West Asia, and the Persian Empire in Asia. Since the beginning of the seventh and during the eighth centuries, the newly forming Muslim state became the inheritor of both these empires. From the Byzantine Empire, the Arabs gained their colonies in Asia, except Asia Minor; in the west they spread all of North Africa then expanded to Spain. It took them about a century to consolidate there, since they were the least adapted of all peoples to the building of an empire. Only occasionally Latin and Greek was replaced by the Arabic language in the main cities. New centres of urbanization were established in places which previously had started as military camps. The Arabs had always been builders. When their state took over the rule of a large tract of land, they founded many centres to control the land, rivers, routes and main strategic points. It is worth noting here that the Arabs used established numerous towns, mostly inland, but rarely far away from the sea coast; cf. for instance Al-Kūfa, Al-Fusṭāṭ or Al-Qayrawān. Many of these centres were located on lateral trade routes, which, in the course of time, became large, populous towns and gained great importance due to their location. It could be said that during that time commercial factors to a large extent motivated the foundation of many states and cities.

Aktualność Hegla
(Rubikon, 1999) Miłkowski, Marcin; Uniwersytet Warszawski
G.W.F. Hegel stał się znowu aktualnym filozofem lub teoretykiem społecznym. Skończyły się chyba czasy dominującej jeszcze do niedawna opinii, że był prekursorem totalitaryzmu i zupełnie bełkotliwym metafizykiem. Świadczy o tym pojawianie się książek pisanych w zupełnie innym duchu. Żeby odpowiedzieć na pytanie "dlaczego Hegel jest aktualny i co to znaczy?", sięgnijmy właśnie do nich. Zarysowano w nich pewną metodę lektury Hegla, dzięki której staje się on myślicielem współczesnym i inspirującym. Najpierw zatem przyjrzyjmy się trzem książkom, jakie ukazały się u nas w latach 1998-1999. Następnie warto będzie zastanowić się nad tym, czy istnieje granica "aktualizowania" myśli Hegla. Spróbuję wskazać także pewien program dla filozofii współczesnej, jaki się tu wyłania.
