Why We Do Not Have Ethical Conduct: A Response to Dr. Sternberg
Carson, Jamin
Educational Forum, v78 n2 p190-195 2014
In "We Need to Teach for Ethical Conduct," Dr. Robert Sternberg argued that students act unethically because they are unable to transfer principles of ethics into practice. While I agree that this is partially the case, it is also the case that unethical behavior is a result of the prevailing educational-philosophy: radical constructivism (RC). In this essay, I show how RC is flawed and how its philosophical opposite, objectivism, is both possible and necessary for an ethical society.
