KRETZSCHMAR, L.. Cultural pathways and pitfalls in South Africa: A reflection on moral agency and leadership from a Christian perspective. Koers (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.75, n.3, pp.567-588. ISSN 2304-8557.

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.

Palabras clave : Christian ethics; culture; leadership; moral agency; moral communities; moral values.
