The author of this article argues against some of Stanisław Pyszka’s views as presented in the article Ewolucja katolickiej nauki społecznej (The Evolution of Catholic Social Teaching), published in Forum Philosophicum 2003, vol 8. T. Ślipko reproaches Pyszka for considering the views on social problems expressed in the encyclical letter Rerum novarum “dogmatic” – as influenced in part by Thomistic philosophy. Pyszka opposes them to the pastoral standpoint of the encyclical letters written by Popes John XXIII, Paul VI and John Paul II. Ślipko states that Catholic social teaching goes on developing, taking into consideration as it does the historical circumstances in which human social groups find themselves, but the underlying moral principles remain unchanged.
