The paper’s goal concerns on ethical and epic analysis in the creation of Ioan Slavici.

Objectives of the investigation:

Novelty and scientific originality consists in reconsidering the personality and work of Ioan Slavic for new cultural and epistemological paradigms and specifically spirituality of beginning of the century and of the millennium.

Theoretical importance residue in trying to demonstrate that through Slavici, the Romanian novel enters into dialogue at the end of nineteenth century and early twentieth-century, with European novel not through the substitution of aesthetics with ethics, but through the same balance.

Applied value of work is that applying these delicately observations to the work and the personality of Ioan Slavici, we ascertain - mutatis mutandis - that he model a universalist ethics through its reading of popular ethics, postulates of Schopenhauer, Kant, Confucius.
