Universality in the moral system

Collective monograph

2021 Jan 28


The presented research reveals the essence of universality, different forms of its manifestation and ways of categorical expression, as well as creates conditions for achieving conceptual and terminological strictness in understanding and discussing the universality in the moral system. The book presents classical and modern concepts of moral universality and analyzes the notion of universality in relation to associated ethical concepts. It also describes the genesis of thinking procedures that form the basis for judgments and decisions in line with universality and examines the interaction of universal and particularistic elements in the normative content of morality. The edition demonstrates the impact of these elements on the public discourse, individual, communicative and socio-political practice.
