Moral Education for Americans.
Heslep, Robert D.
This book addresses the widening and deepening decline of the control of behavior toward one another that has emerged in the United States since the middle of this century, viewed by the writer as a profound problem. The volume argues the solution is a conception of moral education. The rationale here is developed in a dialogical form and discussed at the practical as well as the theoretical level. The book has 10 chapters that include: (1) "A Dire Need for Moral Education"; (2) "The Norms of Moral Agency"; (3) "The Feasibility of the Norms"; (4) "The Goal of Moral Education"; (5) "The Content of Moral Education"; (6) "The Pedagogy of Moral Education"; (7) "Moral Education for the United States"; (8) "Moral Education for Natalene Turner"; (9) "Moral Education for The Force"; and (10) "Implications." A bibliography also is included. (EH)
