Freedom and progress in the context of liberal and communitarian-conservative ideas in the law

Dawid Bunikowski


The paper concerns the development of freedom in the majesty of the law and also liberal and communitarian-conservative ideas in the doctrine of the law, as well as the law as a system of conventionally established rules. The main question is: where are we going to? To the world of the morally responsible people or towards a disaster of the civilization? Freedom understood as a wider field of lawfully and legally human acts is still spreading. The phenomena, which I call “morally controversial cases”, such as abortion or euthanasia, are the best examples of that process in our culture (the West). I agree with the opinion that conscience seems to be a better measure of our personality and morality formation than the law.
