In the paper some aspects of the relationship of the social and individual moral consciousness are analyzed whereby methodological starting point is the dialectics of the two forms of human being — the individual and social one through which man exists in the given structure of social relationships. This fact makes it possible for the two forms of moral consciousness to exist which are a specific reflection of the real spiritual-practical, social-historical activity of man and simultaneously its constitutive element. Author’s attention is directed to the semantic extension of social moral consciousness and to the role of semantization in the process of individualization of this phenomenon whereby rational and emotional aspects of this process are taken into account.
