Skrócony opis:

The aim of the lecture is to present Anthropocene as a new geological era, introducing the ethical consequences of naming the era after human being. As is said in Hans Jonas’ book “The Imperative of Responsibility”, the bigger power one has the bigger is his responsibility. This is the motto of the lecture. During the course we will focus mostly on ethical challenges in the age of man: especially on those connected with globalization, ability to interfere into nature (including animals) as well as the problem of globalization of responsibility through expanding the circle of those included into our ethical consideration.
