The contribution draws on the polemic on the issue in the journals Filozofia (1990 1993) and Organon F (1995 – 2002) which seemed to be terminated by three articles published in 2002. The article focuses on several confusions and misunderstandings implied by this polemic. It also offers a stronger argument in support of the claim that abstract concepts do not develop. According to the author, concepts themselves do not develop, they are developed by people in their minds.
