"Morawski's work is a major contribution to the rich tradition of Marxist humanism. But it is distinctive, in this tradition, Morawski knows the alternative traditions well. He is, among East European writers, perhaps the best and closest student of contemporary Anglo-American aesthetics, in all of its modes. Moreover, he brings to bear the literacy and historical culture of the Polish school of Tatarkiewicz, in aesthetics and art history; of the Polish analytic tradition in philosophy; and a close acquaintance with phenomenological and structuralist approaches, especially in their French versions. The richness of Morawski's work, as well as its occasional eclecticism, stems from a Promethean attempt to incorporate and to be sensitive to this variety. Moreover, this is 'juicy,' as against 'dry,' aesthetics: it is laced (spiked?) with frequent reference to contemporary art and artists, to movements and manifestos, and to the concrete social settings of the artworld."
—Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism
