Description:


The theoretical project undertaken in the paper responds to the concerns to see if and to what extent an ethics of responsibility is possible, one that agrees with the specifics of the knowledge-based society, with the perspectives of affirming the human condition in the context of the challenges facing present and future humanity, in an era of excessively technological and aggressive humanity, in relation to the new tendencies to achieve the human condition. Starting from the realization that the contemporary world is less and less willing to rely in moral judgments on the categorical imperative of pure duty or on the austere value of virtue and more inclined to approach an ethical perspective related to concrete situations, the theoretical approach undertaken by the author is to identify new paradigms of responsibility, in response to the specific problems of contemporary society.
