Women's Proffessional Activity as a Factor of the Demographic Change


The article discusses the relation between parenthood and work on the basis of five countries: Finland, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and Italy. The theoretical basis of the analysis is Gary S. Becker’s thesis that there is the interaction between the number of children born in a given family and elements referring to the quality of those children that is their general health, education, talents which they develop and systems of values which they acquire. The conclusion seems to be that whenever total family income rises, parents are more willing to invest money in human capital of children they already have rather than increase the number of children. The analysis, also, proves that professional activity of mothers looking after their small children is conditioned by both the level of well-being of the respective society and solutions shaping the family policy. The hypothesis could also be formulated that indirect public transfers in the form of institutional child care stimulate professional activity of mothers as well as fertility.

Poorer but More Decent. The Influence of Religious Social Capital in Poland


The concept of social capital, which grew out of the economic context, is sometimes described in literature as a protection against economic inequality since it reduces deprivation and it is operationally associated and operatively associated with the process of sustainable development. Religion and religiousness are mentioned among the factors that generate social capital. On the other hand, a high level of religiosity, according to many international statistical analyses, is associated with low levels of macroeconomic indicators, including economic inequality. This article explores these relationships using a model of religious social capital. This model, used to describe the behavior of individuals and the characteristics of local communities in Poland, captures the relationship between religiosity,

social capital and economic inequality. This relationship proves that on the one hand, religion is an important (principal) resource and a factor of social capital in Poland, on the other hand religious social capital coincides with economic inequality. In this respect the religious social capital differs from religion not based on social capital. However, religious social capital impacts on the moral sphere by reducing phenomena such as smoking, alcoholism, drug abuse and pill addiction.

Global Attitudes of Lublin University Students Towards Religion


Sociologists of religion continue to emphasize unusual steadfastness of religion in Poland, also in its most general form – autodeclaration of faith and religious autoidentification. In the early phase of the system transformation after 1989, the domain of “national religiousness”, where faith of the nation functions more as a common rather than an individual value, was left almost untouched. Escalating secularization as well as structural individualisation make it legitimate to claim that symptoms of changes in the basic parameters of religious life among youth will gradually become more visible. The changes may include one’s affiliation to a particular faith or global attitude toward religion. Still, even in these environments, those changes will not have a revolutionary character.

Generation Group as a Factor Differentiating the Type of Social Capital Appearing in Poland


In research on social capital, one can observe numerous factors which, on the one hand, condition the creation of social capital assets and, on the other, the occurrence of specific types of these assets. One of the factors which influence significantly the dominance of one type of social capital over others in a given community can be linked to the age structure characteristic of such community. A generation change, combined with the change of the social context, entails transformation in the sphere of values which, in turn, has substantial impact on the behaviour of and actions undertaken by the members of such community. The current article offers an analysis of the transformation of social capital in Poland under the influence of the generation change. The analysis is based on the comparison of two

generations of Poles growing up in socially, politically and economically disparate periods.

Attitudes of Poles to the Catholic Church: Sociological Analysis


In this article, first, we draw attention to the understanding of the Church in the consciousness of Polish Catholics, and their trust in the Church. Next, we discuss the activities of the Catholic Church in society, its involvement in political affairs, and the presence of religious symbols in the public sphere. The issue of attitudes of Polish people towards the Church is examined from the sociological point of view, taking into account the selected results of public opinion polls and sociological research. Since our study of the Church is sociological in nature, we – of course – do not analyze theological dimensions (the Church as the Mystical Body, the Church as the People of God). From a theological point of view, the external aspects of the Church are of secondary importance, whereas a sociologist

can describe, interpret and explain the external and social dimensions of the Church.

The Difficult Russian Road to Independent Media


Media market experts unanimously stress an important contribution of news agencies to the development of Russian media. The leading agencies are, apart from TASS and APN (the Novosti Press Agency), which used to be monopolists in the past, in the first place RIA-Novosti, Lenta.ru, Agentstvo Evropejskikh Novostey and Gorod 24. An important factor is the corporate magazine, being a tool for creating a positive corporation image, and an additional source of income. Though the Russian media are all the time vigorously expanding, one cannot fail to notice their biased coverage of current affairs, for example comments on events related to the social protests in Ukraine, as well as lampooning members of the Pussy Riot group in the leading newspapers. The situation is made worse by the propaganda character of the Russia Today TV channel.

(Non-)religious Morality of Catholics in Poland


In this article, based on the results of quantitative research conducted by CBOS in the years 2005–2013, the author identifies the impact of religiousness on the moral directives recognized by Catholics in Poland and on their approach to various kinds of moral attitudes and behaviours. It turns out that the significance of religion, which is still an important aspect of life in Poland, is gradually decreasing. CBOS data collected over the last couple of years confirms the hypothesis of a progressive gap between morality and religiousness and shows a significant increase in moral relativism in the attitudes of Catholics. But the increasing autonomy of religion and morality does not mean, as it seems, the complete disintegration of moral values and norms, but rather their reorganization and subjectivisation in the process of creating oneʼs own code of conduct.


Keywords: religion, morality, moral relativism, secularization of morality



Parody and irony as communication strategies inThe Colbert Report


Many contemporary American satirical programs try to convey the importance of critical reception of media reality. Being one of such programs, The Colbert Report uses irony and parody to create comedic materials which blend commentary, serious information, and entertainment. The show’s host, Stephen Colbert, puts on a mask of a conservative news announcer commenting on current political and social affairs by constant parody, since Colbert never leaves his constructed persona, using exaggeration and absurdity to mock contemporary news media, politicians and ideologies. The aim of this paper is a phenomenological analysis of the strategies in which creators of The Colbert Report use parody and irony in media communication. The specific type of irony that Colbert uses is not sarcastic, but it is more of an ironic mode, a mechanism, which is supposed to emphasize the absurdity of a specific media situation. In The Colbert Report, one can differentiate three main ironic mechanisms: context denaturalization, demystification of rhetorical discourse, and intertextual allusions.


Keywords: irony, parody, The Colbert Report
