From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adam Mahrburg (1855–1913) was a Polish philosopher—the outstanding philosophical mind of Poland's Positivist period.[1]



Adam Mahrburg was a philosopher and theoretician of knowledge. He taught in Warsaw's secret university and published in learned and popular journals.[2]

He reduced philosophy to the theory of knowledge. He regarded science as a tool for ordering and anticipating phenomena and for effective action. He was an exponent of determinism.[2]
