Adam Mahrburg was a philosopher and theoretician of knowledge. He taught in Warsaw's secret university and published in learned and popular journals.[2]

He reduced philosophy to the theory of knowledge. He regarded science as a tool for ordering and anticipating phenomena and for effective action. He was an exponent of determinism.[2]
