Ethic and the Requirement of Complexity in Social Work


This article reflects the importance of ethics and the requirement of complexity in social work. It happens in continuity of French philosopher Gilles Lipovetsky (changes of the ethical paradigma) and in connection with ethics and health. The article highlights in particular the importance of individual ethical motivations, which are not always fully appreciated in social work. The individual ethical motivations seem to be weak in the context of the changes of the ethical paradigm. Therefore, the article appeals to more specific content detemination of the basic principle in social work – the concept of human dignity.
