The main purpose of the article is to consider the phenomenon of poverty from the ethical point of view. The addressed problem is essential among social and humanistic sciences. Therefore many concepts of the phenomenon have been presented. They differ in the way they describe the problem of poverty (highlighting different definitional aspects of poverty, risks entailed by this state and ways of solving this problem). Unfortunately, this crucial issue is relatively rare analyzed by the ethicists. The author’s aim is to fill this gap and present the addressed problem from the ethical point of view.
