The Polish SF writer, Stanisław Lem, who was also - for me and many others - great intellectual autority, died today in the age of 85 years.

I am now paying my small tribute to his all philosophical achievement that are so highly esteemed by me - by mentioning him here. If you haven't yet read any of his works (they were translated into many languages), I invite you to do so.

Although I read only a few of his novels I really enjoyed . When I was in 6th grade I was only one in my classrom who read whole "Pilot Pirx" - one of his most famous book. Last year on my high school final exams I presented lecture about his two novels.
I'm amazed by his ability to predict inventions. Many things that he described in 60s and 70s, were invented later and exists now... although every SF writer tries to predict future, Lem did what nobody have done before.

From his books I personally recommend "His Master's Voice" - it may appear a bit laborious to read at first, but I think it's one of his best.
Also his last SF book, "Fiasco" is very inspiring and in fact is about very similar problems, too.
