The subject of acts and duties

The person differs in free and conscious action, standing out on what happens becoming an object possessed by the ego and consciously used.
The integration allows to investigate somatic and psyche, which participate in the reality of the act.
Instinct and impulse are natural instruments of preservation; they are integrated into the act, perceptible and controllable with respect to the purpose.
In fact, the act consciously responds to values and emotionality gets expressiveness with experiences, bringing body and spirit closer together; In fact, although not perceived by the conscience, sensations qualify and manifest the values experienced by the body.
Ignoring all this, Kant imposes to do only reasoned actions, considering emotionality harmful.
An aesthetic, religious or moral sense manifests emotionality and spirituality, which can be exalted with sensitive excitement and can favor the psyche or hinder it when excessive.
Unlike feelings and passions that happen, remorse moves, judges for the evil experienced and drives to conversion.
The intensity of emotion can confer expressiveness to domination and self-possession, but its excess can prevent the conscience from acquiring experiences and acting responsibly; however, responsibility may remain to procure or consent refraining from the happening degradation.
In both free choices and emotions, the human inclination should orient between good and evil by subordination to the truth in order to establish a correct action; thanks to virtues, good moral values are accepted and evil is rejected with spontaneous emotions. -  email:
