Abstract By over?stressing legal analogies in ethical theory, I believe we have neglected aspects of morality that tie it closely to the development of personal responsiblity. When this relationship is realized, discrepancies sometimes claimed between self?interest and the social good dissolve. This paper defends an approach to moral education based on using responsibility as a causal means to greater autonomy or personal freedom. By holding people unconditionally or ?ascriptively? responsible, eliminating all excusing conditions, the kind of responsibility logically entailed by Intentional choosing or Inexcusable neglect can be fostered. Concrete applications and examples of what I call ascriptive responsibility are set forth throughout the paper. ?Action?regulators? are also suggested which operationalize and individuate education in responsibility still further
