The paper presents an analysis of philosophical conceptions developed in the circles of the Learned Society of Malohont. The author specifies their position and their importance in the context of European Enlightment, their internal link up to progressive intellectual movements of their epoque. He holds it is possible to find side by side with conservative and contradictional ideas also progressive and original thoughts in the opinions of Feješ, Laurentzy, Steigel and Šulek. The author proves to find them especially in their interpretation of Enlightment conceptions of rationality, gnoseological criticism and humanity.
