The paper was written on the occasion of the 25th aniversary of the death of the most important representative of modern Slovak philosophy, scientist and teacher Igor Hrušovský. The author outlines the main periods of his life and professional activities: beginning with his membership in the association Scientific Sythesis, organizing the scientific research and the research of Slovak intellectual heritage, followed by his participation in utopian endeavours at a radical social change and his coming to terms with marxism-leninism, up to his coming back to founding a scientific philosophy and developing his own conception of dialectical structurology, which in the times of so called normalization he had to defend in controversions and polemics against dogmatics.
