Example text

In the present perspective, the moral worth of an action or a person follows from the order of inner development. The theory under discussion does not utilize conceptualized values as reference points for moral valuation; values emerge from the valuational process itself, but they do not playa central role. Neither are values to be considered the intentional objects of a transcendental constitutive process. It is the process of valuation that supplies the criteria for the moral determination of conduct by means of the subordinate principles mentioned above.

After having persevered through Tymieniecka's elaborate disquisition, it is a great pleasure to find the same concepts and ideas lucidly presented by Mollica as anchored in Tymieniecka's well known notion of creativity. For her, so Mollica, the creative power of the human being is the "Archimedean Point" from which, through the moral significance of life, a new structure can be built to re-create a viable scientific-societal program in answer to current controversies. Tymieniecka notes the theory of Kazimierz Dabrowski and his theory of deconstructive and constructive action, meaning that the person, advancing in personal and social constituting of life processes follows a pattern of destruction and reconstruction; that is, the person drops projects already surpassed and constitutes new ones.

Much more work is needed in this area, particularly in the differentiation of the different sorts of moral tasks. Can benevolence be considered as possessing an intentional dimension? Is there yet a significant part of morality that lends itself to transcendental constitutive analysis? These questions are instances of the issue raised in the preceding paragraph and suggest the need for a re-examination of the position. We are grateful to Tymieniecka for developing the comprehensive and coherent thesis which has stimulated the questions just raised.
