Description The paper presents the analysis of partial rationality („rossum“)—far-sighted rationality in the artistic and philosophical projects about technology and about future of the humanity. The results of the analysis are used as a criterium for rethinking of moral questions of technological approaches to solving the environmental crisis and the other global problems. The article makes recommendations in the field of environmental ethics and bioethics—defining rationality as an unreasonable vision of progress against life.
