Reply to Morgan
Clayton, Matthew
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v28 n1 p91-100 Jan 2009
This article responds to certain objections Jeffrey Morgan raises against the theory of liberal education defended in "Justice and Legitimacy in Upbringing." First, it replies to his claim that the theory is too individualistic and pays insufficient attention to considerations of "care". Second, it recapitulates and clarifies the argument that the ideal of autonomy supports the conclusion that it is illegitimate for parents to enrol their children into controversial conceptions of the good life, and seeks to rebut Morgan's criticisms of that argument.
