of the Catholic University of Lublin.
A brief biography.
The 75th meeting of
of the Catholic University of Lublin, presided over by
Prof. Mieczyslaw Albert Krapiec, O.P. was celebrated from 25 till 26 July
Prof. Mieczyslaw Albert Krapiec, O.P. was born 25 Mai 1921. He has been associated with the Catholic University of Lublin since 1947 and served as a rector of the University for thirteen years (1970-1983).
Philosophically, Krapiec falls within the classical realistic tradition. His
primary interests revolve around the basic questions of culture, examined from
the point of view of metaphysics, philosophical anthropology, political
philosophy, and philosophy of knowledge.
He is the author of thirty books and close to three hundred articles. These works, together with his many years of teaching, have contributed to the intellectual formation of several generations of Poles.
Krapiec is the principal founder of the Lublin School of Philosophy, which is attracting increasing attention in Western Europe and North America, where his books Metaphysics and I-Man are used as texts in colleges and universities.
He is a recipient of honorary doctorates from the University of Toronto (1989) and the University of Leuven (1990). In 1992, Krapiec was named 'Person of the Year' by the International Biographical Center in Cambridge, England, and by the American Biographical Institute in North Carolina.
