In this paper a relation between moral relativism and selected ethical notions formulated in the German material ethics of values is examined. Firstly, I demonstrate the understanding of structure of value in writings of Scheler, Hartmann and von Hildebrand. Secondly, I endeavour to prove that there are notions of value itself and its validity which allows to criticize the legitimacy of the moral relativism. Thirdly, I analyze a different kinds of the oughtness (an ideal ought, a normative ought, an ideal ought-to-Be, an actual ought-to-Be, a real ought-to-Do). The aim of this analysis is to demonstrate that the historical and social relativity of the normative oughtness (also of the actual and real oughtness) does not contradict the invariability of the ideal ought-to-Be.

Key-words: relativism, ethics, value, oughtness, validity, matter of value
