Summary/Abstract: In the article there is proposed a critical look at the oeuvre of Ryszard Kapuścińskifrom the perspective of his intellectual masters. Herodotus, Joseph Conrad and BronisławMalinowski appear not only as great individualities in the history of the world but mostof all, as incisive teachers accompanying him at different levels of his writing self-knowledge.Father of history gives Kapuściński first lesson on arcane of reportage, Korzeniowskishows him the consequences of European colonization and teaches him how to uncoverthe true reasons behind events, whereas Malinowski guides him to encounter with theOther. A need of mobility is common to all of them, a want of living which directlyembraces the outside world and genuine care for artistic quality of their works.
