(Original title: Nadčasovosť reflexií Mariana Várossa (k 100. výročiu narodenia))
Filozofia, 78 (2023), 1, 59 - 70.
Type of work: Reflections
Publication language: Slovak
The essay deals with the issue of topicality of thinking, themes and approaches of one of the leading figures of Slovak culture, who could never officially work in a philosophical institution. On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Marian Váross, the essay recounts Reflections in Solitude, which in their content and treatment transcend the time they were written in. The essay also accentuates the unifying point of departure and perspective of Váross's thought, which is the philosophy of man, philosophical anthropology, and the claim of humanity as an axiological supernorm.

Váross as philosopher, Axiology, Supernorm of humanity, Human being and creativity, Totalitarianism, Democracy, Pluralism, Ideology, Fascism, Freedom, Human rights
