Imputation of a responsibility towards another people, which was implicitly existed in Antiquity and Middle Ages, clearly was connected with the Self-understanding during the early Enlightenment only. That man, who has reasonable connection with himself, is responsible — and towards such man the imputation of his deeds is possible. The similar possibility — to create reasonable connection with Self, to consider such Self critically and to rule its, is the foundation of the person in the philosophy of classical Modern. On the edge between 18-th an 19-th centuries the similar point of view came to its highest point in Kant's philosophy. Person, Kant said, is that subject, whose deeds are able for an imputation.

Under such keyword as «responsibility» after Kant the question about reverse suppositions was raised, more clearly, the question, doesn't moral or legal imputation create the person as the Self-connection?

Keywords Person, Responsibility, Self-connection, Imputation, Enlightenment, Idealism.
