HENRYK ELZENBERG AS A THEORETICIAN OF ETHICS

The article exposes the main theses of the ethical theory of Henryk Elzenberg (1887-1966), an eminent Polish philosopher and ethicist. The author outlines Elzenberg’s conception of ethics, the two types of values he differentiated, namely the „perfective” and the utilitarian, and the two ethical systems, the perfectionistic and the hedonistic, which characterises these two values. Finally, the author discusses the differentiation between goodness and beauty as the two perfective values as proposed by Elzenberg.
