On Religious Opinions of Tadeusz Kotarbinski
Languages of publication
The authoress provides a review of opinions on faith and religion as expressed by Kotarbinski throughout his life. The early views are marked by respect for the moral import of Catholicism and a strong conviction that church metaphysics is a fiction. In later years Kotarbinski makes a plea for creating elementary schools that offer no religious instruction, for clear separation of religious training from the teaching of scientific topics, for elimination from academic curricula any forms of thought purporting that prayer can change the course of events in nature. Some of his remarks would be considered politically incorrect today, like his quip that a European should not imitate a savage who uses his drums to stop the eclipse of the sun by the moon.
