Description The paper focuses on the research of ethical aspects of the contemporary discourse on the terminal stage of human life. This importatnt existential theme is currently subject to some unilateral moral judgment. This is in particular a critigue of so-called institutionalization and anonymity of dying as a manifestation of the alienation of the contemporary lifestyle. The text offers a reflection on the interdependance of the dominant ethos with the concrete form and the problems of the functioning of the society and its institutions.
