Description - Philosophical Discussion in Moral Education by Tim Sprod
In recent years there has been an increase in the number of calls for moral education to receive greater public attention. In our pluralist society, however, it is difficult to find agreement on what exactly moral education requires. 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. Tim Sprod carefully analyses 'reasonableness' and autonomy as key aims of moral education, and explores how these and other virtues can be enhanced through classroom dialogue. Paying particular attention to the teacher's role, this book highlights the justification for, and methods of, creating a classroom community of ethical inquiry.
