Abstract
Abstract The paper is an attempt to provide a brief analysis of moral experience and moral agency set firmly within an experiential analysis of the human person. The approach yields a set of ?moral components? that the moral educator should take into account, but also enables him to understand their significance in human life. The analysis stresses the importance of ?moral character?, which is seen partly in terms of the blind development of innate psychic capacities or powers in response to environmental factors and the deliberate policies of educators, partly in terms of the free acts of the spiritual?rational self. Much importance is attached to the inner life, and to the individual's responsibility to achieve autonomy in relation to the lower parts of his soul
