about

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 Educationdevelops 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 role, this book highlights the justification for, and methods of, creating a classroom community of ethical inquiry.

Editorial Reviews

'For a forthright, critical and thorough account of Habermas's theory of communicative action and discourse ethics, I highly recommend Sprod's. It is the best, certainly the clearest, explication I have come across.' - Clive Lindop, Critical & Creative Thinking
