Two Meanings of the Concept of Responsibility

(Original title: K dvom významom pojmu zopdovednosť)
Filozofia, 55 (2000), 8, 620-631.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The main argument of the paper is, that there are two menanigs of the concept of responsibility. On one hand there is the meaning bringing the responsibility together with the idea of imputable actions and on the other hand the concept of responsibility defined through the quality of warranty. The responsibility is thus seen as related to the human behaviour as well as to the kindred and mutual dependence, which are constitutive of human relationships. The author's view is, that to shed lihgt on these different menanings makes the proper understanding of what it means to be responsible posssible.
