Chapter Summary

The Hegelian and Marxian demand for the Aufhebung of morality, ethics and religion that was elaborated in the Croatian praxis philosophy cannot endure neither theoretical nor historical criticism. After the historical collapse of the Marxian project of communism, both ethics and religion find confirmation as enduring factors of social life at the global level. Moreover, they develop in their new forms suitable to the spirit of the new age. Ethics, together with logic and physics, appears even in the pre-Socratic period of the development of the ancient Greek philosophy as one of its three basic parts, that is, at the very beginning of the emergence of European science and philosophy. Bioethical problems, like cloning, eugenics, medically assisted prolongation of human life, and even theoretically presumed immortality, will be the main focus of ethics and religion in the future.

Keywords: Aufhebung; Bioethical problems; Croatian praxis philosophy; ethics; Marxist post-Hegelian philosophy; religion
