The philosophical basis of the Foundation “Vertical Dimension of Culture”:
Anthropology: HOMO SPIRITUALIS
Ontology: transcendental dimension of reality
Ethics: personalism, philosophy of dialogue
Philosophy of art: CULTURE OF MEETING
Philosophy of culture: CULTURE AS ASPIRATION TOWARDS HIGHER VALUES

The reasons for establishing the Foundation:

The Foundation “Vertical Dimension of Culture” was established above all for young people who belong to the so-called “Y” generation. Therefore, the aim of the Foundation is to give young people the possibility of intellectual, artistic and spiritual growth, as well as personal development. The Foundation promotes various ideas and initiatives, encouraging young people to adopt certain attitudes towards the tradition and the system of values of the European culture. Students have also the opportunity to consult their ideas and undertake their own initiatives, as the activities of the Foundation are based on a close cooperation between academic teachers of Nicolaus Copernicus University, who are members of the Foundation, and students-volunteers.

 For young people

The Foundation proposes and promotes

1. “a beautiful lifestyle” instead of “a healthy lifestyle”,

2. culture of reflection instead of culture of laughter,

3. personal contact instead of anonymity,

4. idealism instead of pragmatism.

 Changing the system of values

We organise:

1.cultural events: concerts, exhibitions, performances,

2. conferences, debates,

3. workshops,

4. study tours.

 Thinking about culture

We concentrate on the following activities of the public interest:

1. science and higher education,

2. education and upbringing,

3. culture and art,

4. the protection of cultural and national heritage.

 Wisdom, Beauty, Goodness
