    Debating Moral Education: Rethinking the Role of the Modern University.Elizabeth Kiss & J. Peter Euben (eds.) - 2010 - Duke University Press.
    After decades of marginalization in the secularized twentieth-century academy, moral education has enjoyed a recent resurgence in American higher education, with the establishment of more than 100 ethics centers and programs on campuses across the country. Yet the idea that the university has a civic responsibility to teach its undergraduate students ethics and morality has been met with skepticism, suspicion, and even outright rejection from both inside and outside the academy. In this collection, renowned scholars of philosophy, (...)

  2. Moral Education and Transcendental Idealism.Joe Saunders & Martin Sticker - 2020 - Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 102 (4):646-673.
    In this paper, we draw attention to several important tensions between Kant’s account of moral education and his commitment to transcendental idealism. Our main claim is that, in locating freedom outside of space and time, transcendental idealism makes it difficult for Kant to both provide an explanation of how moral education occurs, but also to confirm that his own account actually works. Having laid out these problems, we then offer a response on Kant’s behalf. We argue (...)

  4. Moral Education and Character Education: Their Relationship and Roles in Citizenship Education.Wolfgang Althof & Marvin W. Berkowitz* - 2006 - Journal of Moral Education 35 (4):495-518.
    Any democratic society must concern itself with the socialization of its citizens. This begins in childhood, and schools are critical to this process. The interrelations and roles of educating for character and educating for citizenship are explored, largely in a North American context. It is argued that citizenship education necessarily entails character and moral formation, but this integration is hindered by negative stereotyping between the two fields. In addition, negative stereotyping between the fields of moral education (...)

    A Theory of Moral Education.Michael Hand - 2017 - London: Routledge.
    Children must be taught morality. They must be taught to recognise the authority of moral standards and to understand what makes them authoritative. But there’s a problem: the content and justification of morality are matters of reasonable disagreement among reasonable people. This makes it hard to see how educators can secure children’s commitment to moral standards without indoctrinating them. -/- In A Theory of Moral Education, Michael Hand tackles this problem head on. He sets out to (...)

  7. Moral Education at Work: On the Scope of MacIntyre’s Concept of a Practice.Matthew Sinnicks - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 159 (1):105-118.
    This paper seeks to show how MacIntyre’s concept of a practice can survive a series of ‘scope problems’ which threaten to render the concept inapplicable to business ethics. I begin by outlining MacIntyre’s concept of a practice before arguing that, despite an asymmetry between productive and non-productive practices, the elasticity of the concept of a practice allows us to accommodate productive and profitable activities. This elasticity of practices allows us to sidestep the problem of adjudicating between practitioners and non-practitioners as (...)

    Moral Education Within the Social Contract: Whose Contract is It Anyway?Laura D’Olimpio - 2019 - Journal of Moral Education 48 (4):515-528.
    ABSTRACTIn A Theory of Moral Education, Michael Hand defends the importance of teaching children moral standards, even while taking seriously the fact that reasonable people disagree about morality. While I agree there are universal moral values based on the kind of beings humans are, I raise two issues with Hand’s account. The first is an omission that may be compatible with Hand’s theory; the role of virtues. A role for the cultivation of virtues and rational emotions (...)

    Moral Education and Rule Consequentialism.Dale E. Miller - 2021 - Philosophical Quarterly 71 (1):120-140.
    Rule consequentialism holds that an action's moral standing depends on its relation to the moral code whose general adoption would have the best consequences. Heretofore rule consequentialists have understood the notion of a code's being generally adopted in terms of its being generally obeyed or, more commonly, its being generally accepted. I argue that these ways of understanding general adoption lead to unacceptable formulations of the theory. For instance, Brad Hooker, Michael Ridge, and Holly Smith have recently offered (...)

    In this paper I argue that although the Republic’s tripartite theory of the soul is not explicitly endorsed in Plato’s late work the Laws, it continues to inform the Laws from beneath the surface of the text. In particular, I argue that the spirited part of the soul continues to play a major role in moral education and development in the Laws (as it did in earlier texts, where it is characterized as reason’s psychic ‘ally’). I examine the (...)

    The structure of studies of moral education is basically interdisciplinary; it includes moral philosophy, psychology, and educational research. This article systematically analyses the structure of studies of moral educational from the vantage points of philosophy of science. Among the various theoretical frameworks in the field of philosophy of science, this article mainly utilizes the perspectives of Lakatos’s research program. In particular, the article considers the relations and interactions between different fields, including moral philosophy, psychology, and (...)

    Moral Education Trends Over 40 Years: A Content Analysis of the Journal of Moral Education (1971–2011).Chi-Ming Lee & Monica J. Taylor - 2013 - Journal of Moral Education 42 (4):1-31.
    In 2011 the Journal of Moral Education (JME) celebrated its 40th anniversary of publication. It seemed appropriate to examine and reflect on the JME?s achievements by reviewing its evolution and contribution to the emerging field of moral education and development. Moral education trends, as reflected in the 945 articles published in JME from 1971 to 2011, were investigated by content analysis. The research objectives were: to discover the trends in moral education as (...)

The first problem raises worries about the viability of the account in ordinary circumstances. The second charges the proposed educational model with indoctrinating students. The main goal of this article (...)

    Moral Education in the Zone of Proximal Development.Mark B. Tappan - 1998 - Journal of Moral Education 27 (2):141-160.
    Abstract In this paper the outlines of an explicitly ?Vygotskian? perspective on moral education are sketched. I begin by briefly reviewing and critiquing the two most well?known and widely used approaches to moral education??the cognitive?developmental approach and the character education approach??and I suggest that a Vygotskian/socio?cultural perspective has the potential to address many of the problems faced by contemporary moral educators. Vygotsky's ideas about the ?zone of proximal development? are then summarised and those ideas (...)

    Moral Education in a Time of Human Ecological Devastation.Darcia Narvaez - 2021 - Journal of Moral Education 50 (1):55-67.
    ABSTRACT Stories of civilization and progress tell us that humans cannot help being destructive, selfish, and aggressive, which are side effects of progress requiring sanctions and engineering. It can be argued that this approach has brought about the ecological collapse we face today. The older, more widespread view—that human personality and behavior are shaped by social support—respects the dignity of the individual and of other than humans, disallows coercion and expects high autonomy and communalism. The latter we can call the (...)

Philosophical Discussion in Moral Education develops a detailed philosophical defence of the claim that teachers should engage students in ethical discussions to promote moral competence and strengthen moral character. Paying particular attention to the teacher's (...)

    Two Principles of Early Moral Education: A Condition for the Law, Reflection and Autonomy.Janez Krek - 2015 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 34 (1):9-29.
    We establish the thesis that in moral education, particularly in the first years of the child’s development, unreflexive acts or unreflexiveness in certain behaviours of adults is a condition for the development of the personality structure and virtues that enable autonomous ethical reflection and a relation to the Other. With the notion of unreflexiveness we refer to resolvedness in the response of adults when it is necessary to establish a limit, or cut, in the child’s demand for pleasure, (...)

    Moral Education at the Movies: On the Cinematic Treatment of Morally Significant Story and Narrative.David Carr - 2006 - Journal of Moral Education 35 (3):319-333.
    Much contemporary social theory has emphasised the key role that cultural and other narrative plays in any human understanding of moral self and agency. However, in those modern social contexts in which literacy has been widespread, such access to narrative has also been largely via the written word: those significantly educated in cultural heritage have been the primarily well?read. Still, in an age in which communication is most commonly prosecuted through the electronic media of radio, cinema, television and computer, (...)

    Moral Education in Sweden.Gunni Kärrby - 1978 - Journal of Moral Education 8 (1):14-22.
    Abstract Moral education in this paper is given a broader meaning than is usually the case, to include the socialization process as a whole. Until the middle of the 1800s education in Sweden was wholly administered by the Church. The educational system can today be seen as an instrument serving to fulfil the national democratic goals of justice and equality. Objectivity and all?round clarification of subject matter should characterize teaching. Thus, moral education in a narrow (...)

    Abstract Moral education is being phased into the state?approved curriculum in Malaysia and is designed for non?Muslim pupils in the school population. The stated aim of the curriculum is the development of a ?morally?mature? person who will be able to make independent judgements in a moral conflict situation. This paper gives an account of the processes involved in the evolution of the moral education programme, while commenting on issues that impinge most centrally upon it.

    Autonomous Moral Education is Socratic Moral Education: The Import of Repeated Activity in Moral Education Out of Evil and Into Virtue.Jeanine M. Grenberg - 2018 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 51 (13):1327-1338.
    Kant’s commitment to autonomy raises difficult questions about the very possibility of Kantian moral education, since appeal to external pedagogical guidance threatens to be in contradiction with autonomous virtue. Furthermore, moral education seems to involve getting good at something through repetition; but Kant seems to eschew the notion of repeated natural activity as antithetical to autonomy. Things become even trickier once we remember that Kant also views autonomous human beings as radically evil: we are capable of (...)

    Diversity is a feature of family life which those who speak of the importance of family values should not ignore. The diversity is seen not only in the structure of families, but also in the moral values which children actually pick up in the context of the family and the way in which the transmission of values occurs. Diversity becomes a matter of public importance when the values which children develop at home are perceived to be in serious conflict (...)

    Abstract Moral education in Singapore, ever since political independence, has been pragmatically aimed at forging together, by promoting shared values, the four major racial and cultural communities which at various stages had threatened to polarise. It has also been used for preserving a cultural and national identity against the perceived erosion of Asian roots by Western education. Social cohesion and moral ballast have been seen as instrumental towards a strong economy, including the attraction of foreign investors. (...)

    Moral Education and the Perils of Developmentalism.David Carr - 2002 - Journal of Moral Education 31 (1):5-19.
    Many conceptions of moral formation--not least some influential modern accounts--are developmental in character: they aspire to trace progress to moral maturity through or across some sequence or other of more or less well defined stages of cognitive, conative and/or affective growth. In so far as accounts of this kind are often less than mutually consistent, however, the logical status and/or evidential basis of such developmental theories remains less than clear. This article argues that such accounts are inherently normative--precisely, (...)

    Identity, Citizenship and Moral Education.Laurance Splitter - 2011 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 43 (5):484-505.
    Questions of identity such as ‘Who am I?’ are often answered by appeals to one or more affiliations with a specific nation (citizenship), culture, ethnicity, religion, etc. Taking as given the idea that identity over time—including identification and re-identification—for objects of a particular kind requires that there be criteria of identity appropriate to things of that kind, I argue that citizenship, as a ‘collectivist’ concept, does not generate such criteria for individual citizens, but that the concept person—which specifies the kind (...)

    Moral Education in Hungary Fifteen Years After the Transition.Tamas Kozma - 2005 - Journal of Moral Education 34 (4):491-504.
    The Hungarian transition of 1989-1990 had economic, political and cultural dimensions. The cultural dimension may be defined as a temporary loss of norms and controls, and as an emphatic experience of the 'kairos'. As an outcome of this unusual experience, new political forces stepped into the educational policy arena, and they established new institutions. The 'new educational institutions', like denominational schools, are explained. How do these institutions work after 15 years of the transition? Hungarian public schools are mostly 'neutral' as (...)

    Traditional approaches to character education have been viewed by many educators as an attempt to establish self control within students to habituate them to prescribed behaviour and as nothing more than a ?bits?and?pieces? approach to moral education. While this is accurate for many character education programmes, integrated multi?dimensional character education embraces both moral education and character formation. Students learn to identify and process social conventions within the core values of the school and community (...)

    Moral Education in a Postmodern World: Continuing Professional Education.Richard G. Bagnall - 1998 - Journal of Moral Education 27 (3):313-331.
    This paper seeks to examine the nature of moral education in a postmodern cultural context with a particular focus on continuing professional education. It is argued that postmodernity sees the radical privatisation of moral responsibility. Building upon a critique of modernist ethics and moral education, five types of response to that privatisation are postulated and evaluated: foundationalism, codification, egocentrism, neotribalism and situationalism. Only the last of these types is seen as an acceptance of the (...)

    I argue that political liberals should not support the monopoly of a single educational approach in state sponsored schools. Instead, they should allow reasonable citizens latitude to choose the worldview in which their own children are educated. I begin by defending a particular conception of political liberalism, and its associated requirement of public reason, against the received interpretation. I argue that the values of respect and civic friendship that motivate the public reason requirement do not support the common demand that (...)

    Aristotle on Law and Moral Education.Zena Hitz - 2012 - Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy 42:263-306.
    It is widely agreed that Aristotle holds that the best moral education involves habituation in the proper pleasures of virtuous action. But it is rarely acknowledged that Aristotle repeatedly emphasizes the social and political sources of good habits, and strongly suggests that the correct law‐ordained education in proper pleasures is very rare or non‐existent. A careful look at the Nicomachean Ethics along with parallel discussions in the Eudemian Ethics and Politics suggests that Aristotle divided public moral (...)
