The universalistic concept of science in the philosophical and theological doctrine of Karol Wojtyla - John Paul II

Sylwia Górzna


FRAGMENT: The voice of Karol Wojtyla, better known as John Paul II, is very important among contemporary theologians and Catholic philosophers. Many times the Pope paid attention to scientific issues, i.e. scientific and technological development and its ethical consequences, relation between cognition and faith as well as the mission of the Science. His concept is becoming a universalistic idea, in its philosophical and ethical sense as well as in an institutional one. He often pointed at the universalistic character of Science in his papal documents and speeches. The core of Science is expressed by the postulate of searching a universal and absolute truth. It is a mission of humanities as well as sciences.
