Summary/Abstract: In my short paper I intend to draw a vast panorama of ethical issues and problems that directly or indirectly follow from the paper by Tadeusz Styczeń “Etyka jako antropologia normatywna” [“Ethics as Normative Anthropology”], a very important and inspiring work for ethical and metaethical reflection in Poland. However, Styczeń’s article raises doubts and objections concerning both the manner of constructing ethics he proposed and the normative content of such ethics. What is the source of moral truth and of the truth about ethics? How to understand an ethical category of the person? It is also worthwhile to reflect on how Styczeń’s ethics should be developed, which is a task, above all, of his disciples. What future research directions should be followed, what problems are to be addressed and how to connect different aspects of ethics with the contemporary humanities? Considered at this level, ethics is not only a kind models of ethical living, acting, and thinking.
