Jakub Górski (ca. 1525 – 1583) was a Polish Renaissance philosopher.[1]

Life[edit]

Jakub Górski was an early Polish representative of Stoicism. He wrote a famous Dialectic (1563) and many works in grammar, rhetoric, theology and sociology. A professor at Kraków University, he was an erudite man whose Dialectic gives evidence of extensive acquaintance with new currents and authors, but he was more erudite than independent as a thinker. He tended to eclecticism and sought to reconcile the Stoics with Aristotle.[2]
