Although he was educated for the priesthood, he turned from Orthodox religion to a faith in science and in social regeneration under the guidance of the intellectual elite. For him the unpardonable sin was dogmatism, since he believed that neither religious, nor historical, nor scientific knowledge is wholly accurate.

He completed his gymnasium and got his B. At the same time he concluded that a career in the Church was impossible for one with his individualistic religious views. A trial at teaching in at a gymnasium in Uzice convinced him that he could endure teaching.

A year later he took a few months leave to volunteer for the Serbo-Bulgarian War His vision was also social and political. He believed in man’s dignity and natural right to liberty.

For the next 20 years he taught throughout Serbia, moved from one town to the next, Though this job entailed a great amount of drugery, he managed to write and publish several volumes. In he was transferred from his teaching post in Uzice to Nis. Here he found a coterie of admirers, and a change in fortune and reputation came with the publication of ” Principi istorije ” Principles of history in Henceforth, history and philosophy were his major interests.


Such constant transfers from one high school to another while translating foreign authors and writing about history and philosophy at the same time is a testament to struggle and to courage, for every bit of it was composed under conditions which most writers would find impossible.

There can be no question that much of the writing he did was written under difficult conditions.

Furthermore, his illness contributed to his death. He died at Belgrade on 18 February of tuberculosis. He was only He was, indeed, an original thinker. Integrity as well as lasting inspirations to future generations of our species on this earth and elsewhere, perhaps even in the as yet uncharted depths of abysmal space were questions on his mind. He wrote, bozodar dogma is an embalmed thought: The whole, which is unconscious and general, precedes the part, which is conscious and specific.

When the part separates from knezeviv whole, there is conflict with the whole and with other parts. From this conflict there arises a new order and proportionality which is only temporary and gives place to a new phase of disintegration. However, in history as a whole, the growth of civilization leads to increasing social justice and the elimination of irrationality in human life.

Morality and more moral organization of social life are born out of pain and suffering. It consists in the liberation from all external forces and presupposes the overcoming of ordinary motives for knezsvic behavior.

The result is a vast, dynamic, and unique vision of mankind’s place and destiny within the determining laws of an evolving then devolving universe. Only what never began will never end; what preceded everything else will survive everything else; what happened first will disappear last.

The discovery of the intrinsic bozidr in the world is achieved through truth. Bozidxr lie is a conscious distortion of truth. Error is noble and natural. Error is a lower degree of truth. A lie is an obstacle to truth.

He said, ” The entire truth does not rest in any particular theory, idea or principle, as kezevic are only particles of the whole truth He envisioned a worldwide socio-cultural system as the outgrowth of human progress grounded in science and historical understanding. In addition, “history binds all peoples and leads to their reconciliation and overall harmony”.

Proportion, he boldly states, is “the Telos philosophy of history. Once elements achieve proportion and balance with each other, “they live simultaneously” in a great organic whole in which one can ultimately arrive at “complete morality, freedom, justice and truth”.

Whereas academic philosophers repudiated this system as incoherent, many Serb avant-garde poets and writers found in it a congenial vision of the universe in which everything, including poetry and beauty, had its own rightful place in a world striving after proportion.
