Ladies and Gentlemen, Do you know what mites, workers’ settlements, Apollo butterflies and invasive plants have in common with multicoloured white of glaciers, indispensable bees and Xerolycosa nemoralis spiders?

Rector of the University of Silesia in Katowice

The world around us is the jam smeared on a slice of bread. The world around us is everyday rush to school or work, often through the fog or heavy rain which may bring flood. The world around us is the short lunch break with a serving of boiled potatoes with dill or golden chips on the plate, a fan on a hot day, a spider, a ladybird and a flea in the favourite pet’s fur. The world around us is also the November chrysanthemums, holiday at the Baltic Sea or on a trail in the Beskidy Mountains, a handful of evening news from a nearby city or a different continent. It is stargazing before sleep – look into the starry sky – unbelievably distant and yet so close because seen every night. The world around us: rich, diversified, changing, solid, universal and subjective at the same time. This is simply the world around us. (...more)

The real world around us is full of various colours and many different sounds, offering astonishing surprises. As Ortega y Gasset once said, ‘To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand’. The world undergoing eternal transformations encourages us to ask questions, to delve into the subject to uncover new mysteries. Thanks to this curiosity, we discover secrets of various life forms and, consequently, learn the human nature and the sense of human existence. (...more)
