According to Jonas the industrial implementation of technology on the environment modifies, because of its apocalyptic potential, human condition in so radical a way that it requires a new ethics. Such an opinion is questionable from two points of view: 1. are the environmental interactions and modifications just a peculiarity of man as homo faber? Are we sure that our predicament is due just to a quantitative excess of technology and not to some qualitative flaws as well? 2. Could a categorical imperative with its moral - and not just technical - necessity be inferred from a factual situation?
