Thick or Thin? The Cognitive Content of Moral Education in a Plural Democracy.
Haydon, Graham
Journal of Moral Education, v24 n1 p53-64 1995
Asserts that it is commonly thought that moral education in a pluralistic society must be thin; confined to a few shared values. Argues that citizenship in a plural democracy demands a cognitively substantial form of moral education. Maintains that both democratic participation and demands of toleration need a high level of moral understanding. (CFR)
