Abstract 21:233-235

Kojder, Andrzej (2013) Letter to the Editor. „Profilaktyka Społeczna i Resocjalizacja” 21: 233-235.



We point to some inaccuracies which can be found in Volume 20 of IPSiR Works. It states that: “the first employees were the staff transferred (…) from the Institute of Sociology of the University of Warsaw, gathered around Professor Adam Podgórecki…” and further adds 7 names. However, the Team (not the Department) of the Study of Social Norms and Social Pathology at the Institute of Sociology of the University of Warsaw, which was headed by Adam Podgórecki, PhD and assistant professor at that time, included Magdalena Jasińska PhD, Krzysztof Kiciński (both employed with Assistant Professor Podgórecki in the Chair of Morality Theory of Maria Ossowska), Jacek Kurczewski PhD and Andrzej Kojder MA (first a PhD student and next senior assistant). Maria Łoś was associate professor in the Department of Praxeology of the Polish Academy of Science, Maria Smoła was not employed at the Institute of Sociology and there is no information on whether Marek Tabin was the employee of the Institute.
