(Original title: K otázke filozofických kategórií a vedeckých pojmov)
Filozofia, 35 (1979), 2, 167-177.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak
The paper deals with the nature of philosophical categories and their relation to scientific terms, namely the universal scientific terms. Two aspects of philosophical categories are emphasized. On the one hand it is pointed out that philosophical categories in the process of cognition never stand out in the pure philosophical shape, but they are concretized by a certain scientific sphere on the particular level of cognition, on the other hand the specificity of philosophical categories and the scientific terms are to be distinguished. Their identification results, in the final consequence, in the onesided and, after all, metaphysical explanation of reality.
