Ethical aspects of scientific-scholarly work. The world of values as an integral part of individual and social life. The academic community is infected, ethical norms have become a burden. Scientific work has become the ground for unacceptable socio-patholo-gical behaviour. There is a lack of awareness of principles; objectivity, truthfulness, originality, correctness and tolerance of other perspectives, personal honesty, tactfulness and integrity, a critical spirit, modesty and humility.
