The Golden Rule: Two Versions and Two Views

Journal of Moral Education 12 (2):100-103 (1983)
Abstract The Golden Rule appears in two versions, the negative one viewed by Confucius as a moral prescription and the positive one viewed by Jesus as a religious prescription. Students in a sixth grade classroom in an American public school studied both versions, exploring the fundamental issues underlying them. After reviewing their investigation of the question, ?How do I follow the Golden Rule, either in its positive or negative version??, considerations follow regarding the different approaches to another question, ?Should I follow the Golden Rule, either in its positive or negative version??, within the context of a moral or a religious education programme
