Life

Wiszniewski graduated from the celebrated Krzemieniec Lyceum (secondary school), where he subsequently taught for a time.[2]

In 1831 he became a professor at Kraków's Jagiellonian University. He was a conservative activist during the Kraków Uprising of 1846. In 1848 he emigrated to Italy.[3]

Wiszniewski was an epigone of the Polish Enlightenment, and at the same time a precursor of Positivism.[4]

He authored a pioneering book on Characters of Human Minds, which is regarded as the first Polish work in the field of psychology.[5]
