Jan Salamucha’s Analytical Thomism

  • Roger Pouivet
Part of the Logic, Epistemology, and the Unity of Science book series (LEUS, volume 16)

One may have interest in Polish philosophy out of Polonophilia or because one aims at restoring Polish philosophy’s right to historical recognition, and both are excellent reasons. In my opinion, Polish philosophy anticipated what constitutes the best part of analytical philosophy today. This is the case, in particular, of Jan Salamucha, a philosopher whose renown is lesser than that of Tarski, Łukasiewicz or Kotarbiński, but whose work has much in common with metaphysics and the philosophy of religion in their current analytical version.
