The leitmotif of the paper is the theistic negation of Hegel’s philosophy in the work of the Slovak thinker – Samo Bohdan Hroboň. In this context, the author also comments on some methodological issues in the research of the history of Slovak philosophy at present emphasising mainly the receptive character of Slovak philosophy, including the work of S. B. Hroboň. Hroboň’s work includes – according to the author – three types of reception of Hegel’s philosophy: 1. Literal adoption of the text, 2. reconstruction of the adopted text, 3. domestication of the adopted text. The article exemplifies the fact that the philosophical work of S. B. Hroboň is represented by ideological continuity and discontinuity, synchrony and diachrony, variability and invariance, receptivity as well as application specificity. In conclusion, the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the history of Slovak philosophy, including the work of S. B. Hroboň, is justified.
