Co możemy powiedzieć o wartościach

What can be said about values

The paper is an attempt at the descriptive analysis of the realm of values, undertaken from the phenomenological perspective. It is not a systematic survey in this field but rather a review of some basic intuitions. The author tries to show that terminology of Ingarden’s ontology can be succesfully applied to this matter. In particular, ontological status of values reminds to some extent existential characteristic of intentional objects: they exist only for conscious subjects, although they are not created by them — in this last respect they bear some similarity to real objects.
