STRESZCZENIE ARTYKUŁU
Primitivism is a marginal current of political thought. It is based on the concept of the return to the era of primitive past. However, primitivists view this concept as an inspiration rather than a closed vision of the future. The founders and followers of primitivism address problems which are ignored by scholars and politicians, and show that there are other, alternative ways of thinking about the future. Primitivism is a utopian thought, but this does not mean that it cannot be an inspiring source of new ideas concerning the reform of modern civilization in the ecological and axiological aspect. The main creators of modern primitivism are John Zerzan from the United States and John Moore from the United Kingdom. Primitivism shows ideological similarities to other trends of political thought which are in the peripheries of the modern sets of political ideas. They include: anarchism, tribalism, Luddism and agrarianism.
