Jacek Woroniecki OP (1878-1949) is known as a prominent representative of philosophical and theological conception of ethics inspired by the trend of classical Thomism within Christianity that has both theoretical and practical character. The first of its aspects is based on a disinterested approach to the truth about man, his actions, values and duties, and the second one is to show the way and manners, thanks to which preceptors of any kind can accomplish perfection in forming the obedience among their wards. In general, the issues concerning the educational methodics are discussed by Father Woroniecki quite rarely, and when they appear, they seem to result from deeply understood and accepted aims of the upbringing. A very important element of this methodical conception is stimulation of ward's care for the common good that depends on forming the obedience. The article indicates three activities, thanks to which the obedience can be formed: ruling, commanding and castigating. Within his methodical conception Jacek Woroniecki OP concentrates on: preceptor's duties, ruling deficiency, order requirements, commanding and permission insufficiency, significance and conditions of the proper castigating. Father Woroniecki also presents two main principles concerning the punishment, and discusses the significance of compassion, closer recognition of a ward, elimination of sentimentality, severity, forbearance, and giving praise in the process of forming the obedience.
