Morality and ethics
not complicated and not oversimplified
Morality does not
mean only statically fixed morals, nor is ethics only analytic
theory, but in modern understanding it is about time-dependent
balance between statics and dynamics, between analysis and synthesis
and between theory and practice.
ARS-UNA finds also here convincing references to four parts, namely the imaginary time and three real pairwise categories whose dimensions we ourselves explore. If we fall into one-sided extremes, our freedom is lost.
At first this sounds
both complicated and unacceptably simplified, but even between these
two extremes there is a viable modern middle way that can encompass
very different areas of life - inner and outer, art and science,
ecology and economics.
