Summary/Abstract: The article attempts to analyze the problems that the phenomenon of virtuality raises for moral philosophy. Virtuality is increasingly asserting itself in all areas of human activity. On the other hand, digitization, especially in the field of communication and media, is another important process requiring ethical analysis. It is important to ascertain whether philosophy has the ambition to establish the human presence in every universalized form of messaging and information. The author’s main idea is that, despite the growth of modern communication technologies, philosophical ethics must preserve the value of the spiritual, the moral sources that form us as persons.
