The problems of value standards stressing the value of nature, the nature of human and social beings are the traditional ones in environmental ethics. The author (she) outlines two different approaches to the problems. Attention is paid to the modification of the existing value hierarchies and to the building of the alternative ones. The place of responsibility in these conceptions is examined as well as their ethical status, methods, and last, but not least, their past and present impact on the societies.
