He conceived his own philosophical system which he called "the ergantropic and incontrological (Polish: ergantropijno-inkontrologiczny) philosophical system of meetings within things". He worked as an academic at the University of Warsaw (1952–63), the University of Wrocław (1963–73), the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin (1973–91) and achieved the rank of a professor. He was co-founder and chairman of the Association of Atheists and Freethinkers and of the Polish Association for Religious Studies (Polish: Polskie Towarzystwo Religioznawcze). He was the founder and editor-in-chief of the "Euhemer" magazine.
