Clarken, Rodney H.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Chicago, IL, April 7-13, 2007)
Society is in turmoil that can be termed a moral crisis the result of dogmatic materialistic worldviews. A more holistic framework for moral development based on the tripartite theory that considers cognitive, affective and conative domains and capacities is presented along with some guiding principles as an answer to the needs of the modern world. The psychomotor domain is also considered in its role as a vehicle for manifesting moral behavior that can be also be used as part of a model for more holistic development.
