Polish Modernity. A Genealogy
In the case of Poland the first signs of modernity, i.e. the ideological influence of the Enlightenment and the economic impact of capitalism, were connected with the attempts to overcome crisis of the Republic. The loss of the independent state brought modernisation problems, which made the underdevelopment of the country a crucial factor affecting Polish culture. The 19th-century struggle for modernity was to create cultural patterns, which still define views and attitudes of the Poles.
