The theory of esoteric morality developed on the
basis of utilitarian ethics tries to realize a postulate
that ethics should have, above all, practical application.
The aim of the article is an attempt to answer
the question whether this theory may become
a common ethical position of two distant views
on morality - utilitarianism and personalism, and
whether the attempts to justify esoteric morality
with arguments that are closer to the Catholic ethics
are correct. The article engages in a polemic
with examples of such apparent consensus, and
also indicates the position of the Catholic ethics
towards the esoteric morality.
