Summary/Abstract: The study is a philosophy and social ethics essay about the relation between two levels: the theoretical level, dominated by different sets of values, and the social reality level. This relation is characterized both by interdependence and dichotomy. Analyzing feminist ethics in relation with social reality, but also moral Christianity, in this article I tried to explain how moral systems interfere with the social reality dimension. The conclusion is that social dynamics is more alert than theoretical structure of moral values. Changing the theoretical level is sometimes determined by social anomalies which can be solved by changing mentalities, and this imply the moral value system to. The moral values obsolescence is the cause for two kind of non-exclusive reactions: on the one hand, the manifestation of a social group that is struggle for a different moral values, on the other hand, the individual self-defense reaction against social immoral influences.
