Omnia sponte fluant...

Commemorating a jubilee of a Brno philosopher Jiří Gabriel, the author of this essay focuses on an important figure of Czech and world thought, John Amos Comenius. The goal is to show how the philosophical-theological concept of General Consultation was ahead of its time, mainly with respect to protestant orthodoxy. The focus is on the sixth part of General Consultation Panorthosia (Universal Improvement), which became a source of criticism of his concept of Pansophia (Universal Science) in the final part of his life.
