    STUDIA BIOETHICA - Issue no. 1-2 / 2016  

Authors:  DEJAN DONEV.
  Abstract:  Modern civilization is in crisis. The gaps are numerous and deep! Along with new and great scientific discoveries, the humanity at the same time isn''''t increased. This led us to moral disorientation in various areas of life. In the late 60th and early 70th of the last century, the first premonitory signs of this development showed especially encouraged by the threat of environmental pollution. Human unlimited development showed the first negative impact on the world in which we live, the nature that surrounds us. The modern man becomes more aware of fact that it can destroy the flying boat, the house in which lives. The text deals with the increased need for answering two basic questions according to the new area of research in ethics, i.e. human behavior towards nature. The first question is do we need indeed, for resolving this problem, a scientific strategy postulated on the basics of ecology as a science of the environment and transformed into social and political decision (as biopolitics on international and national level) or do we need a new ethics for the environment that will be established as a scientific strategy and therefore as a biopolitics? The second issue concerns whether the nature and environmental protection are interesting for us only on an instrumental level or we believe that nature has intrinsic value, so it can exist even without man?

Keywords: eco-ethics, nature, environment, ecology.
