To Honorable prof. Jan Legowicz, PhD

c Honorable Dean,
c c I have several assignments entrusted to me by the Editorial Committee of the Library of the Classics of Philosophy. Therefore, as of right now I cannot take on the task of the substantive examination of the translation and corrections made by Honorable Dean. I will do so with pleasure, however, as soon as I deal with my tasks in progress. Today, however, I would like to formally point out that the number of corrections made by Mr. Dean is so large that it is de facto a completely new translation and that, therefore, it does not seem to be about the emotions and the strength of prof. Dąmbska’s reaction, but rather about a quite complicated legal matter the Editorial Committee should consider. However, regardless of how it is resolved by the Committee – and I think it should be dealt with by means of a fairly general statement, as similar situations take place quite often – I will read and check, as thoroughly as my skills allow, both prof. Dąmbska’s translation and the changes introduced into it, and then I will reply in detail with regards to my view on the entire matter.
c For now, I am asking for some time respectfully
