This paper is focused on traditional problems and new challenges of justice. Justice is one of these broad categories that can be attributed the quality of universality.
Universality of justice is connected, inter alia, with its role in the sphere of morality, although it has its limitations here as well. The categories of justice and responsibility remain closely interconnected and their possible regulatory significance in relation to the relevant areas of human activity is not mutually competitive, but complementary. One of the areas where these links are visible is the area of development in science and technology as well as controlling the consequences of their dissemination. Conflicts related to the development of technology are in general the result of the fact that effects, goals, and assets may have different influence and significance for specific individuals, social groups, but also for society as a whole, or even for humanity. As a result, they will also be assessed differently by these individuals or social groups
