The paper presents the idea that the constitution of a purely intentional object can be taken as
a model of creation of the real world. Roman Ingarden's concept of constitution of a literary work
as a purely intentional object is adopted. It is compared with the Thomistic concept of world
creation by God. This paper focuses on showing that in spite of the fundamental difference –
creation gives a being that is real, which constitution cannot – there are interesting analogies
between the two.
