ABRAMOWSKI’S TWO CONCEPTS OF CONSCIENCE
By proclaiming the idea of a moral revolution Abramowski called for a transformation of conscience. He understood conscience as a subjective sanction of norms and values, the substance of which depends on social-economic formations. At the same time he created a framework of another formation. Its full formulation may be found in Experiential Metaphysics, where conscience is tied to the discernment of values existing outside of history and only becoming embodied in it. This second stream of thought may be interpreted in the light of philosophy of life or mystical understanding. Regardless of the particular solutions the reconstruction of Abramowski’s ideas about conscience reveals that the striving toward an absolute justification of the socialist cause is a characteristic trait of the Polish philosopher.
