ON THE DISPUTE ABOUT SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES IN THE SLOVAK PHILOSOPHY OF THE 1940s
Languages of publication
The disputes the paper deals with concerned the adherents of intuitive realism, which defended the epistemological position of direct cognition, and those philosophers, who enforced the position of critical realism. The attention is paid especially to the views and the attitudes of Igor Hrusovsky, which articulated in his polemics with the intuitive realists. According to the authoress Jozef Dieska overestimated so called 'intuitivist turn' in philosophy as well as the importance of the conception of N. O. Losski, making at the same time too many concessions to the scientific achievements and the understanding of scientism of that time. For Hrusovsky as an adherent of scientism, however, the science and philosophy were almost identical.
