Summary/Abstract: The author of the article, using the example of Eleonora Ziemięcka, a philosopher popularin the 1840s, tries to show the mechanisms of forgetting about speculative and religious Polishthinkers of the inter-uprising period. In the fi rst part of the article, he compares posthumousmemories that appeared in the press after Ziemięcka’s death in 1869, while in the secondpart he analyzes her works from the 1860s. In conclusion, he proves that even though she wasimmediately stereotyped as a conservative woman with anachronistic views, her late works showthat she consistently tried to create a modern social and philosophical programme complementaryto Positivism.
