Summary/Abstract: The author analyses the fi rst issue of the magazine of young Warsaw liberal intelligentsiaPrzegląd Tygodniowy Życia Społecznego, Literatury i Sztuk Pięknych. The magazine edited by AdamWiślicki, in its fi rst eleven years became a platform for expressing progressive, positivistic socialthought, literature and philosophy. As it can be seen, the magazine was perfectly planned,seeking to win younger and older readers. In times of severe censorship after the fall of theJanuary Uprising, the magazine mission was to propose a new programme for national culture,much different from the romantic one. The fi rst issue shows how deeply the magazine is rootedin the language, ideas, aesthetic choices of the previous epoch, from which the editors did notdissociate themselves. This ‘temporariness’ earned Przegląd Tygodniowy readers’ recognition andgave it time necessary to become established.
