Despite it, without entering details of the philosophical justification of this skeptical attitude against dogmatisms, wc make sure the aim of our consideration again to clucidate the significance of transfer from environmental ethics to the ethical issue of public health for both professional and civil duties.A pivotal point of this is understanding of the environment and the public health as "common goods" to be socially conserved or made "sustainable." If these were indeed destructed or disturbed by pollution or epidemics, it would appear as "common bad" for us in our ordinary life world.At least in this specific sense, a hermencutical approach to these two ethics is effective enough to make explicit our understandings about public health as a sort of "environment" that cannot be easily reduced to the factors of individual decisions and of monetary and quantitative indexes of calculations.Therefore, instead of two major principles, we must find "substantial" foundations for decision-making and moral evaluation of action and judgments. 
In a more comprehensive contexts for hermeneutical ethics, we can seek a cue of such "substantial" elements for "minimal ethics" (Irrgang,139) which are so simple in their formulations and originally "altruistic" orientated as the Ten Commandments interpreted by Gert (159ff); "Do not kill", "Do not cause pain", "Do not disable", "Do not deprive of freedom", "Do not deprive of pleasure" and so on.
