Abstract

The nature and importance of moral agency for the transformation of persons and society, particularly from a Christian perspective, are discussed in this article. The focus is on cultural pathways and pitfalls with respect to the formation and exercise of moral agency on the part of individuals, leaders and communities. The six dimensions of cultural values as developed by Hampden-Turner and Trompenaars (2000) are used as a framework to describe and evaluate mainly western and African cultural values in order to identify ways of developing moral responsibility and genuine social transformation.


Die aard en belangrikheid van morele bemiddeling vir die transformasie van persone en die samelewing as 'n geheel word veral vanuit 'n Christelike perspektief bespreek. Hierdie artikel fokus op kulturele paaie en slaggate met verwysing na die vorming en uitoefening van morele bemiddeling deur individue, leiers en gemeenskappe. Die ses dimensies van kulturele waardes, soos deur Hampden-Turner en Trompenaars (2000) ontwikkel is, word as 'n raamwerk gebruik. Veral die Weste en Afrika se kulturele waardes word hiermee beskryf en geëvalueer sodat maniere geïdentifiseer kan word om morele verantwoordelikheid te ontwikkel en ware sosiale transformasie te bewerkstellig.
