Abstract

The paper introduces Krytyka Polityczna, the most important Polish New Left social movement. The author describes the movement's activities according to Boltanski and Chiapello's distinction of modes of critique and Eder's theory of middle-class radicalism. The descriptive and theoretical analysis is supported by the presentation of the initial findings of a quantitative study of Krytyka Polityczna's policies.
