Summary/Abstract: In dialogue with Peter-Emil Mitev’s analysis of the ideas of Bernard Muntyan, the article formulates questions related to the scientific and civic responsibility of the scientist reflecting on the global problems of the modern world. For Muntyan, the cognitive and civic ideal of the scientist is “the whole truth”, viewed as “intolerance towards lies”, as “a struggle against all lies”, as a possibility for achieving a humanity in which society and the individual shall preserve the all-human.
