Iwona Szydłowska

University of Gdańsk

A 4 year Ph.D. student at Gdansk Department of Philosophy trying to join her two great passions - literature and philosophy. With William Faulkner as her guiding light in the world of fiction, she is still trying to find new aspects of his writing. Her dissertation focuses on Roman Ingarden's and his follower – Wladyslaw Strozewsky's aesthetics where metaphycical values are a good starting point for further investigations. Now waiting for her next publication: A Dilectic Aspect of Sacrum in Light in August by William Faulkner versus the Theory of Numinous Concratization by Wladyslaw Strozewsky.
