Fryderyk Kwiatkowski

Fryderyk Kwiatkowski is a joint doctoral candidate at the Institute of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University and the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Groningen. His research focuses on the history and development of the academic study of Gnosticism; its impact on Euro-American modern thought; and appropriation in the late twentieth-century religion, fiction, and cultural criticism. Currently, he is finishing a dissertation on Hans Jonas’s, Carl G. Jung’s, and Eric Voegelin’s conceptions of Gnosticism and modernity, and their intertextual affinities with Hollywood films of the 1990s, e.g., The Truman ShowPleasantville, or The Matrix.
