The main objective

The conference follows on the plan given by scientifical SK-project granted by KEGA 008TTU-4/2019 – 2021: The Transfer of Personal Responsibility as a Modern type of an Evasion and its Postmodern Solutions. Since beginning of the year 2019 all scientifical interdisciplinary research of the project has been dedicated to map the situation connected within problems: how to understand and how to apply own responsibility to solve various types of s. c. hot-problems in Slovakia.

The main result of the effort was the notion Liquid Responsibility. It became the main topic of the pilot debate on Liquid Responsibility in Slovakia, in which: the notion Liquid Responsibility was defined and proved in various models of personal decision making process, where it was applied to solve contemporary political or non-ethically just media-cases. (The monograph: Liquid Responsibility in Slovakia (2020), in Slovak, will be prepared on demand to be seen during the conference).

          This year, the main aim of the conference is to grasp the problems of evasions out of personal responsibility in interdisciplinary various types of circumstances and research conditions (education, health-care, media, politics, ethics, and s. o.). Scientifical interdisciplinary research is concentrated into mechanisms of content-free misusing of the notion responsibility (evasions), where the main argumentation comes out of hedonistic, egoistic; however natural, desire to avoid to be not touched by the challenges towards own personal responsibility.

Questions of the conference are directed towards consciences of the audience of the conference to make the notion of the personal responsibility clear, to make it personalised and humanised again, against all of depression of the post-moral age.
