The significance of human act

  1. 1. The Significance of Human Act PREPARED BY: GLYDELLE E. CATALUÑA
  2. 2. SIGNIFICANCE OF HUMAN ACT •Because human acts comes from intellect and the will, they express the thoughts and desires of a person, revealing his moral character. Hence, people are judged by their actions like trees by their fruits. We condemn a person for his evil deed or praise him for doing what is good.
  3. 3. • We often hear people say that they, “condemn the sin but not the person” or suspect. The statement is probably acceptable if it means we should not rush to judge the guilt of a suspect. But the statement is wrong if it means we should not blame people for their evil deeds no matter how unfortunate are these acts. This is to condone evil. Parents, for example, are inclined to be soft towards their children. Instead of being horrified, they are amused that their kids are so smart.
  4. 4. MORAL SENSIBILITY • Moral sensibility is our response towards what is right and wrong. Some people have strong aversion towards wrongdoings, while some are dismissive of them. Some are intolerant and stern, while others are tolerant and accommodating.
  5. 5. • Persons who are liberal and open-minded are inclined to accept evil as a normal occurrence, giving in to such thoughts as “ganyan kasi tao lamang”, “kasi bata pa”, or “kasi masama ang gising”. • People who are intolerant and strict are inclined to punish people “para matuto”, “para di na umulit”, or “para magbago”.
  6. 6. • Moral sensibility may be compared to the sensitivity to pain. Some endure pain longer than others can. Sensitivity to pain is a good thing because it warns us about a danger. A moderate moral sensitivity may be good to us too. • It is moral sensitivity which objects to an indecent behavior or an obscene movie.
  7. 7. • It is moral sensibility which protects against an act of injustice or cruelty. • It is moral sensibility which prevents us from making a fool of ourselves.
  8. 8. • We use to call them “delicadeza”. When a person is not scandalized by what is wrong, when he does not recoil from what is outrageous, when he is not ashamed of his vices ---he is devoid of moral sensibility, he is “manhid”.
  9. 9. • A person who lacks moral sensibility is inclined to act accordingly to his self-interest. He would readily steal to enrich himself, or even commit murder to arrogate power. Adolf Hitler is one such dangerous and wicked person.
