Jan Salamucha’s Model of Relations Between Theology, Philosophy and Scientific Knowledge in the Context of the Thomist Doctrine of Causation

Elżbieta Łukasiewicz, Dariusz Łukasiewicz


Jan Salamucha was one of the leading members of the Cracow Circle, a philosophical movement in Poland in the 1930’s. The aim of the paper is to discuss his model of relations between theological worldview, philosophy and science. Next, following Salamucha’s model, we will consider the question whether the Thomist conception of divine causation is reconcilable with certain theories of contemporary science, e.g., with the theory of evolution, contemporary cosmology or quantum mechanics. In order to better understand how Salamucha’s model arose, in the first part of the paper, the main premises of the Cracow Circle are presented.
