The author displays and reexamines Hare?s "two-level theory" of normative moral thinking, including goals that are intended by its establishing. Given Hare?s holism, the met ethical level, considered as fundamental or the "third" level, has notable effect on process of normative reasoning, especially if it is taken as one of the determinant of the critical moral thin king. Central part of the analysis is examination of utilitarian character of the theory. Autor izlaze i preispituje Herovu teoriju o dva nivoa normativnog moralnog misljenja -"intuitivnog" i "kritickog", kao i ciljeve koji se zele postici njenim ustanovljenjem. Gledano iz perspektive Herovog holizma, metaeticki nivo, shvacen kao fundamentalni ili "treci" nivo, u znatnoj meri utice na proces normativnog rasudjivanja, pogotovo ukoliko se uzima kao jedna od determinanti kritickog moralnog misljenja. Centralni deo analize predstavlja ispitivanje utilitaristickog karaktera ove teorije.
