The Idea of Affirmation of Life in Bronisław Ferdynand Trentowski’s Teachings about Nature
AbstractThe intention of the author of this paper is to remind us about the classical idea of affirmation of life included in Bronisław Ferdynand Trentowski’s philosophy of education and his teachings about nature. This philosopher argues that the ability of affirmation of life is expressed, among others, in the constructive perception and experiencing of certain properties of the universe, such as its unity, purposefulness, diversity, order, beauty, rationality and the rule of law. Human affirmation of life is different in that it manifests itself through a unique emotional and moral sensitivity and spiritual experience of man, such as love and happiness. The author refers to one of the original theses proposed by Trentowski, according to which the fundamental source of affirmation of life by a young person is the correct process of upbringing and education, carried out by the first educators of children and young people, i.e. their parents, guardians and teachers.
