Why argue ethics?
It is widely held that one of the prominent threats to both the well-being of human communities and global security in the dawn of the third millennium is a kind of social disintegration. People find out that there is very little they have in common, solidarity vanishes, and societies fall apart. What’s peculiar about this argument is the ambiguity of the vocabulary. What exactly does the notion of falling apart mean? Is it that the atmosphere of hatred defines the mutual attitude of ideologically-backed groups delimitated by whatever kind of identity-markers? Or, perhaps it refers to the atomization of individuals relying on their disentangled and fragile orientations that Charles Taylor, though in a slightly different context called the «closed world structures».
