The Way of Openness: Moral Sphere Theory, Education, Ethics, and Classroom Management
Bullough, Robert V., Jr.
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v20 n3 p251-263 2014
Noting the challenges of radical pluralism and uncertainty to ethics and education, the author describes, then explores Moral Sphere Theory (MST) developed by the philosopher Robert Kane and in relationship to insights drawn from American pragmatism. The argument is that MST offers fresh ways for thinking about education and the profound obligation of educators to support and sustain worthy forms of life.
