Born in Ghindăoani in the family of a priest, classmate with Ion Creangă and friend of Mihai Eminescu, Vasile Conta is the author of several original works that have been translated and published abroad, receiving high praise: “The Theory of Fatalism” (1875 - 1876), “The Theory of Universal Undulation” (1876 - 1877), “Undertakings of Metaphysics” (1879), “The Fundamentals of Metaphysics” (1890, posthumous). His complete works, including unpublished writings, letters, poems, speeches, articles, legal projects and other documents was edited in 1914 under the coordination of Octav Minar, at the publishing house C.
