The comparative study of the philosophical terminologies can be considered as an important contribution to the intercultural discussion in the contemporary philosophy. The main goal of such terminological investigations is to recognize different philosophic traditions and to found the basis for their dialog. The author examines the Slavic word for the truth »resnica«, which remains present only in the Slovenian language. The Slovenian language as well as the Slovenian philosophical terminology was only partly influenced by the Cyril-Methodian tradition and has retained a lot of terminological possibilities, which take their origins from pre-Cyril-Methodian time. The word »resnica« is examined first by etymology as well as by its historical presence in some other Slavic languages. The grammatical and semantic characteristics of the word are important to understand its philosophical context. In the last part of the article, the author analyses the terminological use of »resnica« by some Slovenian philosophers.
