Education in Morality by J.Mark Halstead and Terence H.McLaughlin pdf free download. Moral education is high on the agenda of most Western societies, but the contemporary climate of moral confusion and sometimes panic is not necessarily conducive to considered judgements about what teachers and schools should be doing in this area, and about which forms of moral education deserve the support of parents, citizens and governments. There is no shortage of new initiatives and strategies in many parts of the world, but sometimes these simply add to the confusion.

This volume offers a collection of philosophical chapters that address various aspects of moral education and seek to illuminate some of the central issues arising in this area. Although the collection does not aspire to provide complete coverage of all the major aspects of the domain of moral education, it covers a broad range of fundamental questions at the forefront of contemporary philosophical debate about moral education and contains a range of contrasting points of view on many of the issues at stake.

The essays in Part I, ‘The nature of morality and moral education’, contain some reflections on general matters relating to the subject of the collection as a whole. In Chapter 1, Amélie O.Rorty develops some suggestive observations on the complex and sometimes hidden ‘ecology’ of the terrain of morality. For her, morality is regionally and functionally diverse, but is essentially oriented—in a wide variety of different ways—to practice. Practical morality is, in her view, an ‘educational institution’ ‘designed to produce certain types of persons, with specific virtues, mentalities, habits and skills directed to affect the world in a certain way’.

The role of moral theory in bringing morality to a ‘well-ordered place’ must, she considers, be conducted in close relationship to politics, education and the imperatives of practical decision. David Carr, in reviewing the area of moral education both historically and philosophically in Chapter 2, draws attention to the difficulties liberal theories of ethics generate for any programme of moral education, and insists that any adequate basis for such a programme requires a commitment to education in virtue derived from certain established ideals of human growth and flourishing.

Part II, ‘Rationality, society and the morally educated person’, begins with Chapter 3 in which Brian Crittenden outlines the principles that should govern moral education in a pluralist liberal democracy, with particular reference to the common school. Ruth Jonathan’s argument in Chapter 4 is in significant tension with a position of the kind developed by Crittenden, because of her insistence that social considerations should be given a greater salience in our understanding of moral education than is typical in liberal accounts.
