Project:

What Is It That Holds Europe Together?
Spiritual Foundations and New Fields of Research

The significance of Krzysztof Michalski lies not only in his new approaches to Nietzschean research and his reinterpretation of Christianity, but also in his activities on behalf of the advancement of European unity.

As part of this PhD project, Michalski’s ideas on the spiritual foundations of Europe will be identified, and by working with his estate, new possible fields of research will be pointed out.
