At the 1987 meeting, the governing board of the Association for Moral Education considered various ways of honouring Larry Kohlberg. Larry Kohlberg has been the guiding light and chief impetus for this organization and the board wanted to recognize this. There was a quick consensus that an on?going lecture series in Larry Kohlberg's name would be a fitting tribute. The annual lecture will be a device for breathing fresh life into the work of moral education; it will be a way of infusing new ideas into the Association, in an ongoing way; a way of expanding our thinking and challenging us. The guest lecturer should be someone with new ideas about moral education or about the psychology of morality or about moral philosophy. Therefore the lecture series is not intended to reminisce each year about Larry Kohlberg, or to freeze Larry's accomplishments, or to rigidity Larry's thinking, or to cannonize Kohlbergian orthodoxy. Rather, in the years to come we expect to invite speakers who are not necessarily insiders of the Association and whose thinking may seem quite different from Larry Kohlberg's ideas of the 1980s. Larry's ideas were constantly being expanded and renewed. He himself claimed to be his own foremost revisionist. It is in this spirit that we intend to honour him with these lectures
