IDENTIFICATION OF APPLIED MORAL PHILOSOPHY ACCENTUATING ECOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS
* Faculty of Arts, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, Košice, Slovakia
This paper endorses the assumption that in ecological philosophy and ethics we overcome the barriers between “two cultures” by means of mutual communication among theorists from both cultures and by means of their quest for a common language. In this quest, the “eternal truths” in philosophy are inherently recombined with novel ideas, resulting from experimental research and natural scientists increasingly change the focus of their research. The aim of this paper is to outline the main line of argumentation and to provide a certain causal tale, which can serve as an explanation. We follow two areas of the research problem: 1. brief identification of applied moral philosophy accentuating ecological reflections; 2. importance of ecological science for identification, understanding and solving of the ecological problem.
