Application of basic principles and values of ethics of social consequences (humanity and human´s dignity) in teacher´s ethics
Languages of publication
The article deals with the application of the basic principles and values of the ethics of social consequences, as the form of nonutilitarian consequentialism, within the ethics of teaching. It concentrates especially on the principles and values of humanity and human dignity. The basic form of humanity consists in the protection and support of one’s own life and the lives of friends, relatives and close people. The higher form of humanity is the protection and support of other and unknown people and that is surplus value (additional value). There are two aspects of the human dignity in the ethics of social consequences. The first of them is linked with the value of life which is earned by regard and respect, the second aspect concerns the fact that human dignity is the function of positive social consequences which follows from our behaviour and actions and they should prevail over the negative social consequences. The author reflects on the application of this concept, its principles and values as the methodological basis of the ethics of teaching.
