Summary/Abstract: This paper refers to the study by Ł. Afeltowicz and K. Pietrowicz published in „Studia Socjologiczne” (3/190: 43–79). The issues touched upon by its Authors have gained substantial significance nowadays, which is the reason to consider it worthwhile to refer to them. The author critically takes up the question whether sociologists should design artificial social experiments and implant them into the existing social reality. The possibile results include reproducing in artificial conditions certain natural social phenomena and/or introducing certain others which do not exist in the social reality in question.
