Applied Ethics in Theory and Practice

Ethics is understood traditionally as a philosophical discipline related to the sphere of philosophizing, termed practical thinking. It would be only a soulless preaching if it did not show how moral norms, values, rules and principles affect to people‘s decisions and actions. The purpose of this publication is to elucidate experience and theoretical consideration on applied ethics in the countries maintaining permanent contact with the Centre of Applied Ethics in Banská Bystrica. By this, we are interested in comparative and dialogical applied ethics representing both particular cultural and intellectual patterns and experience based on their functioning.
