Philosophy and Canon Law” 2021, Vol. 7/2: Semicentennial of Karol Wojtyła’s “The Acting Person”: Ideas – Contexts – Inspirations (II)

The periodical “Philosophy and Canon Law” constitutes an open interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of philosophers and lawyers’ (canonists’) reflections, including representatives of different fields of study. Coping with the issues undertaken in thematic annuals is – from its very assumption – an attempt of providing an answer to complex problems of the dynamically changing world: social, religious, cultural and civilizational.
By the means of their titles the two subsequent volumes of the semiannual announce multiperspective reflection upon the epochal work of the great promoter of integral anthropology – personalism, Karol Wojtyła, the future Pope Saint John Paul II. The purpose of this scientific project is meaningfully underlined by the author of the text marking the beginning of the scientific contemplation, Prof. Jarosław Merecki. “To understand the philosophy of Karol Wojtyła, it is not enough to read this or that book; one has to make an effort to participate personally in the experiences that underlie his philosophy. Only in this way we will be able to follow the path that the philosopher pointed out to us”.
