Ethics of Social Consequences and Evolutionary Ontology in Contemporary Environmental Ethics

Martin Pazdera

Abstract


The article deals with an analysis, comparison and evaluation of Evolutionary Ontology by Josef Šmajs and Ethics of Social Consequences by Vasil Gluchman. It focuses on the similarities between the two theories as well as on some of their differences, especially in relation to environmental ethics. Both theories were created simultaneously in two bordering countries and are still to a great extent inspirational, open to criticism and reflected in the philosophical and ethical community.


Keywords
