Project description

In the thought of both Max Scheler and Karol Wojtyla the concept of moral responsibility and its justification plays a crucial role. In my study I would like to examine to what extend a plea for moral responisibility within the framework of "global justice" and "global ethics" can be founded on the insights of both Scheler and Wojtyla and h ow these insights can be useful as a rejection of moral indifference and passivity.
