In his article, drown up as a programme, the author presents the ground principles of the Christian philosophy, which is implied in the Hebrew and early Christian metaphysics. He sees the conceptional grounds of this philosophy in the antithetical concepts of creation and evolution on one hand and of eternity and time on the other hand. He is concerned to show the existential correspondence between them, which enables him to articulate remarkable theses of a creative evolution, of an eternity opened to history, of the etemalization of time, of a free co-activity of God and man in history e.t.c. He presents the biblical concept of the pneuma as coherent with the creative evolution of man, what on his opinion brings us to a more differentiated understanding of man with regard to bis eschatological dimension opened in pneuma. The author thinks of the authentic Christian philosophy as a prominent historical alternative to the philosophies of other orientations.
