The subject of the paper is the social function of the philosophy of nature. The author presents briefly his own position in this topic and gives an evaluation of the literature on the philosophy of nature in the last three decades or so. According to him, the opposition against the abusing of science for the tasks of social mystification stems mostly from the circles of the (philosophying) scientists themselves and the sociologists of knowledge. What concerns the academic philosophers - in spite of the variety of their ontological orientations - they are prone rather to cultivate the metaphilosophical mythology (of positivistic origins).
