R. S. Peters and Moral Education, 2: Moral Education in Practice

Journal of Moral Education 13 (1):9-16 (1984)
Abstract Peters's views on moral education are to be found in several books and articles written over a period of about 20 years. Two essential elements of his ideas are what he calls procedural principles and basic rules. This article is an attempt to consider his recommendations, particularly in terms of any practical assistance that can be derived from them for those interested in moral education. Close examination reveals some inconsistencies, vagueness and difficulties which suggest problems for his procedural approach and raise the issue of whether alternative, more positive efforts should be reconsidered
