Transformation of the social responsibility is observed nowadays all over the world. The deficiency of responsibility exists in Ukraine that entails a number of serious social consequences. The responsibility is at the border of the individual and social sphere, that is why it is of a dual-character; it possesses properties of the social and individual. The task of the present-day science is the study of the mechanisms of forming and increasing the social responsibility. It is important to explore and describe the consequences following from the special mechanism of display of responsibility and irresponsibility. Sociological, theoretical and empirical researches of responsibility/irresponsibility poses a problem of understanding the source, essence, and its special manifestations in different situations of the social life. Responsibility can be considered as one of determinants of the social activity and daily practice. The forming process of the reflexion levels in respect of responsibility is important. Specific emotional experience of the responsibility is in its social conditionality. The presence of responsibility as a moral motive of social action testifies to high level of moral consciousness and person's socialization. Among all variety of kinds of responsibility, valuable responsibility most closely corresponds to moral responsibility, i.e. to such responsibility which is actualized by a complex of moral requirements.
