Dr hab. Karol Chrobak holds PhD and Habilitation in Philosophy from the Jagiellonian University, where I also obtained my MA. His doctoral thesis (2003) was a philosophical monograph on the theory of the plurality of realities by Leon Chwistek. His habilitation thesis (2014) was devoted to Helmuth Plessner's philosophy of life and its location within the tradition of German philosophical anthropology. Academic interests include social philosophy and philosophy of culture. Currently, Dr. Chrobak is working on two philosophical monographs, one devoted to the analysis of the world of everyday experience, and another one to the question of violence.
