Summary/Abstract: The aim of the recent article is to provide an answer to the question how the implementation of a particular type of metaphors in the scope of ethical discourse can help us to reconsider its normative objectivity in an uncontradictory way. In this context, we investigate M. Johnson’s theory as an illuminative example of a theory of metaphor which is nor irrational, neither can it be referred to the conceptions of objective naturalists. Furthermore, due to the so called moral imagination and its emblematic representation (empathic imagination), we can examine how we can teach ourselves to evaluate the moral experience of the other moral subjects recognizing them as „significant Others“ through the practices of moral understanding and moral criticism.
