Piotr DUCHLIŃSKI – Personalistic Ethics and the Image of the World: Around Tadeusz Styczeń’s Article “Etyka jako antropologia normatywna” [Ethics as Normative Anthropology]

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

The author aims to reconstruct the image of the world underlying Tadeusz Styczeń’s concept of ethics. The reconstruction is based on Styczeń’s views expressed in his article “Etyka jako antropologia normatywna” [“Ethics as Normative Anthropology”], originally published in 1996. The author uses the categories developed in the contemporary philosophy of science, such as the image of the world, the epistemic framework, or the paradigm. He argues that Styczeń accepted the Aristotelian-Thomistic image of the world containing specific metaphysical, epistemological, and axiological presuppositions. In addition, the author offers metalevel observations on the role of the scientific image of the world in ethics and the necessity to confront personalistic ethics with that image. He claims that since the image of the world is of the same character as the accepted paradigm, its choice involves an acceptance of the related cognitive values, tradition and worldview. The image of the world adopted by a given thinker follows from his or her education, tradition, and worldview, as well as from his or her faith in a specific paradigm of philosophizing.
