In the article, the author discusses a Polish philosopher Boguslaw Wolniewicz's standpoint on the issue of euthanasia. On the one hand his standpoint is convergent with moral doctrine of the Church, particularly the Catholic Church, namely by acknowledging that the final criterion of ethical permissibility of a deed is individual conscience. On the other hand the standpoint differs in dissimilar spheres of values to which conscience refers: in Christian doctrine it is a sphere of definite final values set by God while in Boguslaw Wolniewicz's ethics it is a sphere of temporal personal dignity of man.
