The complexity of moral learning: diversity, deprovincialisation and privilege

Journal of Moral Education 40 (3):359-367 (2011)
Abstract
This paper explores some complexities of moral learning by referencing personal and professional experiences that shape my moral ecology. Moral learning, like all forms of learning, is not merely accumulative but rather a recursive, adaptive and elaborative process. The multidimensional nature of this phenomenon can be captured by drawing on the language of complexity theory. Using original poetry as a vehicle for distilling thought, and personal experiences of living, learning and teaching inside and outside my home country (in Hawai?i and Abu Dhabi, China, Korea, Iran) to provide context, I explore three interconnected processes that have been important for moral sense-making in my own life. These are: engaging with diversity, active deprovincialisation and confronting personal privilege. In this discussion I will make a distinction between variety and diversity. In sum, I hope to reveal the synergistic, non-linear and aesthetic dimensions of moral learning
