[Abstract = "Philosophy educationalists more and more often reflect on the problem of possible introduction of common philosophical education. So far, they have considered the basic difficulties to be related to content. After a highly unfavorable period in history (of the Second World War and ideological constraints of 1945–1989, which adds up to exactly half of a century: 1939–1989), it seemed that the fundamental task was to reconstruct theoretical foundations and create conventions for common philosophical education. A half-century break in the teaching of a subject is long enough to assume that basically everything has changed in this area (social reception of philosophy as a teaching subject, the concept of philosophical education and its content, basic methodology of teaching this subject in schools). That is why many attempts have been made to regenerate and adapt philosophical education in Polish schools to contemporary cultural and educational conditions. However, it appears that the basic difficulties are not the content-related ones. Apart from content-related factors, also social, cultural (worldview-related) and political ones are crucial. The question is whether philosophy educationalists, while trying to introduce the program of “philosophication” of the Polish education system, have to confront its political conditioning. Is philosophy (as it was in the inglorious Marxism) still a tool of ideological authorities? Why is it excluded from the education system? What is the role of belief in certain conspiracy theories (that philosophy teaches us to think and no authority needs a thinking society) in creating the image of philosophy in education? To what extent contemporary philosophy education is political?"]
