Is There a Moral Skill?
Gotz, Ignacio L.
Educational Theory, v39 n1 p11-16 Win 1989
The nature of skill, distinguished from habit, is sketched. Moral skill is defined as the skill, born of genetically rooted talent, which masterminds subsidiary skills into moral action (action conforming to certain moral principles). Training this skill is possible, but results will be uneven because talent varies. (IAH)
