THE HUMAN ACTS AND ACTS OF MAN
Transcript of THE HUMAN ACTS AND ACTS OF MAN
designed by Péter Puklus for Prezi
Human acts are actions done intentionally, free, and deliberate of a person.
These are actions that a man properly master for he does them with full knowledge and of his own will.
Acts which proceed from a deliberate freewill.
A man is fully responsible with the consequences of his acts.
Involves and man’s responsibility and accountability of the results of his/her actions.
Essential attributes of Human Acts
An act is done knowingly, when the doer is conscious (all senses are active, sensory-perception is functional) and aware of the reason and the consequences on his actions.
Knowledge is supplied by the intellect and it directs the will to want the object it proposes.
An act is done when the doer acts by his own initiative and choice without being forced to do so by another person or situation.
It makes the doer the father of his acts and thus, the doer is responsible for those acts. He can acknowledge that he has done them because he wanted to and he can explain why he wanted to do them.
An act is done willfully when the doer consents to the acts, accepting it as his own, and assumes accountability for its consequences.
It is naturally inclined to the good, but man may sometimes deliberately choose evil.
ACTS OF MAN
Acts of man are instinctive, such as physiological in nature.
These are actions done under the circumstances of ignorance, passion, fear, violence, and habits.
Acts that are performed by men without being master of them through his intellect and will, therefore acts of man are involuntary actions.
ACTS OF MAN
Acts of persons without the proper use of reason. For example, children or innate persons.
Acts of people asleep or under the influence or other drugs. The loss of direct responsibility is voluntary, however, the power of will might still be present.
