    A bit of a Chicago Boy, as it turns out. Thanks to Pejman for the tip. Requiescat in pace.

      He will be missed.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Never read any of his stuff. What’s his best book?

    3. pst314 Says:

      I couldn’t say what his best book is, but I think you might enjoy as an introduction My Correct Views On Everything.

    4. Jay Manifold Says:

      Link to the aforementioned. Looks pretty good and I might just get it. Out of stock at the moment, but perhaps we can start a groundswell of Kołakowski-ism.

    5. pst314 Says:

      Kołakowski’s “Main Currents of Marxism” is a massive volume of history and analysis which Marxists are likely to loathe.

      George Weigel writes here on meeting Kolakowski and on what makes Kolakowski an important thinker.
