Marian Váross significantly contributed to the institutionalization of psychology in Slovakia. As a result of an intensive study of values and kinds of evaluation at the universities in Paris and Cambridge he formulated a system of knowledge, which even today is still the original base in the field. According to him, theories of values can be divided into three groups: objectivist, subjectivist, and dialectical theories. To underline is also Váross’s including values into a wider psychological context, especially with regard to personality, attitudes, norms, and ideals of the individual.
