Summary/Abstract: The article considers the most important theodicean problems in Józef #yci'ski’s texts. The author of the article examines the issue of the existence of God and evil taking into account the following arguments: (1) the argument from God’s kenotic presence in nature, (2) the argument from an unjustified extrapolation of the feeling of absurdity, (3) argument from the limits of God’s omnipotence, which includes (3a) the argument from the price for the another direction of evolution, and (3b) the argument from transworld depravity, (4) the argument from an analogy between limitation claims in logic and mathematics and ontological determinants of suffering, (5) the argument from moral beauty, persuasion and mystery.
