  HPL: Essays - Magical Theory: Harry Potter's Magic
Moreover, Harry's tendency to bypass or simply flout the rules is a matter of moral concern for him: he wonders and worries about the self-justifications he offers, and often doubts not just his abilities but his virtue.
This history provides a key to understanding the role of magic in Joanne Rowling's books, for she begins by positing a counterfactual history, a history in which magic was not a false and incompetent discipline, but rather a means of controlling the physical world at least as potent as experimental science.
Harry Potter is unquestionably a good boy, but, as I have suggested, a key component of his virtue arises from his recognition that he is not inevitably good.

  Magic (Harry Potter) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Magic exists in a sharply defined moral universe, and magical ability is strongly tied to emotion: spells appear to be good or evil by nature, and the emotions and intentions of the caster affect spellcasting.
Magical techniques have been used to prolong life: the Philosopher's Stone can be used to prepare a potion that postpones death indefinitely, and Lord Voldemort is one of the few wizards to ever use Horcruxes in his long sought attempt to "conquer death", and is believed to be the only one to use multiple Horcruxes.
Harry Potter himself is a Parselmouth, despite the fact that he is not a Dark wizard, and it is speculated at various points in the series that his acquisition of this skill was one of the many by-products of Lord Voldemort's attempt on his life when he was a child.

Moreover, some of them note, Harry Potter is not exactly a model student: he has, as the Headmaster of Hogwarts puts it, "a certain disregard for rules," and spends a good deal of time fervently hoping not to get caught in mid—disregard.
Moreover, Harry’s tendency to bypass or simply flout the rules is a matter of moral concern for him: he wonders and worries about the self—justifications he offers, and often doubts not just his abilities but his virtue.
In this sense the strong tendency of magic to become a dream of power—on the importance of this point Lynn Thorndike, Keith Thomas, and C. Lewis all agree—makes it a wonderful means by which to focus the theme of Bildung, of the choices that gradually but inexorably shape us into certain distinct kinds of persons.
