Towards the Place and Relationship of Philosophy and Sociology in One Theoretical Conception

The author analyses the development of the views of A. Sirácky from the second half of the 1960s on the role of philosophy and its relationship to the newly established sociology. It was a period, when the most part of the humanities felt themselves free and independent. During the normalisation period this process was violently interrupted. The authorś point is, that A. Sirácky as a representative of Slovak intellectual elite also took part in this process, enforced from outside. In spite of certain criticism against Marxist dogmatism he himself in his conception pursued consequently a dogma, according to which both sociology and philosophy are ideological disciplines.
