Abstract

The main message of the authors is directed to the actualization of the question: is it possible for religious (Christian) ethics as a deontology of praxis to be adequate to the modern man in the society of "risks and threats" (W. Beck). If we compare the socio-economic tendencies towards modernization and globalization and the socio-humanitarian (anthropological) related to the universalization of values, and to identify within the various social projects - liberalism and neo-conservatism - the mechanisms of their (tendencies) interpenetration and mutual determination, then the particularity of the particular ethos and its inadequacy to the challenges of the development of modern technological civilization should be emphasized.
