Title: Happiness in thought of Karol Wojtyła

Morality so often is associated with rules and limits and as such it is understood as something negative. Does it really need to be like this? Is morality something which is contrary to happiness? This last concept required examination in the thought of Karol Wojtyła, well known as John Paul II but less as a philosopher and professor of ethics. The internal drama of the human being will be studied through a personal act, but also the way of approaching interpersonal relationships and understanding of the relation with God which are seen as a main source of happiness.
