Short biographical note:
Jerzy Janik (1927-2012) - graduate of mathematics and physics at the University of Warsaw. Professor specializing in neutron physics, a longtime employee of The H. Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics, Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences, Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Literature, Doctor Honoris Causa of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Doctor Honoris Causa of the United Institute of Nuclear Research in Dubna.
Interest in the issue of the relationship between science and philosophy (as well as religion) was the main reason for the meeting of prof. Janik and Karol Wojtyła in the 1950s. On the initiative of prof. Janik a group of intellectuals who were conducting joint discussions on the selected subject was invited. After the election of Cardinal Wojtyła as Pope, seminaries were already held at Castel Gandolfo.
