To International Scientific Conference:
THE DIALOGUE ABOUT A HUMAN BEING ON THE WAY TO THE TRUTH
JOHN PAUL II-EDITH STEIN-ROMAN INGARDEN
12th -13th October 2020
The Parliament of Republic of Poland by way of resolution established 2020 as the year of Saint John Paul II and Roman Ingarden who were related to Edith Stein by phenomenology as the method of philosophising and widely understood issue of human existence. Reflection on scientific achievements of these phenomenologists and individuals who had a great impact on spiritual life of Europe in 20th century will help to explore the depth and novelty of their investigations. It will certainly reveal the mutual relationships, influences and dependences of their philosophical conceptions as well as personal choices. Suggested issues have both life and academic dimensions since life makes human being to reflect on oneself. This reflection leads to more complete understanding of oneself. The issue keeps up with the modern times since contemporary man who seeks the truth lost the sense of identity to certain extant.
