Abstract
The paper presents the main assumptions of the metaphysics of axiological realism of Tadeusz Czeżowski, one of the eminent representatives of the Lvov-Warsaw School. Czeżowski’s major thesis is that values are not properties of any kind, but they are transcendental concepts in the understanding of Duns Scotus . One of the consequences of such a view is that his realism has a form of non-naturalism. Czeżowski’s position is not completely clear and elaborated in all details; it is possible, for some reasons discussed in the text, to regard values as a kind of non-natural states of affairs which are correlates of relevant axiological propositions.RésuméL’article présente les propositions principales de la métaphysique du réalisme axiologique de Tadeusz Czeżowski, l’un des représentants éminents de l’École de Lvov-Varsovie. La thèse soutenue par Czeżowski est que les valeurs ne sont pas des propriétés de n’importe quel genre, mais qu’elles constituent des notions transcendentales au sens de Duns Scot . Une des conséquences de cette position est que le réalisme de Czeżowski a la forme d’un non-naturalisme. La position prise par Czeżowski n’est pas tout à fait claire ni élaborée en détails ; pour des raisons discutées dans le présent texte, il est possible de considérer les valeurs comme des sortes d’états de choses non-naturels, qui sont les correspondants des phrases axiolo-giques pertinentes
