The will manifests the person

According to Kant, subjective responsibility is the acting that takes a law of its own; however, man is prone to mistakes, so little knowledge of the human intimacy would be shown by a mere referring to each one’s conscience; such understanding should be a personal interest, it is an experiential challenge, in which conscience objectivizes acts and lives experiences in the contact between body and soul.
Subjectivism believes that conscience conditions the experience and that the conscious act reveals the moral character, which the self is responsible for.
Although man feels the subject of acts and experiences, the conscience internalizes the emotions as phenomena to be grasped with sensations and moral evaluations.  
The subject is a cause and agent aware of the action, in which the ego discovers the moment of freedom, which determines the moral good and evil, exposed by Kant as an attribute of the will, which directs the ego towards a value and a sake.
Freedom is independence, but avoiding the self-dependency is not self-domination nor freedom; the will is free to determines one's own person, but then his or her act binds the self to his or her free choice.
The self knows it exists between objects and values, and its freedom is manifested by the ability to choose; before reaching the independent act, the reasons direct the choice to the greater well presented to his will; as reasons affect determination, domination, and self-possession, nonetheless thought can be wrong even though moral good and evil are linked to the truth.
The will wants to know the objects to be linked to the values before motivating the act with a judgment that reveals the spiritual nature of the subject.
When the act is decided and becomes a fact, the person remains bound to it by the known truth, so conditioning or actualizing the self-domain and possession. -  email:
