Profesor Janusz Dunin (1931-2007) was a humanist, an academic lecturer and a social activist. In his research he combined on a book a few parallel discourses: bibliology, bibliophily. He was interested in the social functioning of the contexts of publications and the evolutions of consumer strategies for reading as a human activity. The article refers to the modern theory of books and bibliology relationships with other areas. In a number of his scientific publications we can find the expressions of diversity research. Dunin traces culture books and trying to attempt to find their reflection of human behaviour. The outline of anthropological theory proposed by Dunin’s book is a search for an interesting example of the borders of contemporary book science research and voice in the debate about the identity of the science of book.
