An edition of an autograph manuscript of Adam Krokiewicz (1890-1977), a professor of the University of Warsaw, famous for his research on ancient philosophy and literature. The manuscript seems the beginning of a much larger work, either lost or never finished. In this fragment the author looks for the rationale of the Greek belief that future events can be foreseen; he also discusses the relationship between fate and the gods' will and shows that Greek deities were often jealous of human happiness. Krokiewicz's text is preceded by a short introduction written by one of his disciples, Juliusz Domanski.
