Education without Moral Worth? Kantian Moral Theory and the Obligation to Educate Others
Martin, Christopher
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v45 n3 p475-492 Aug 2011
This article examines the possibility of a Kantian justification of the intrinsic moral worth of education. The author critiques a recent attempt to secure such justification via Kant's notion of the Kingdom of Ends. He gives four reasons why such an account would deny any intrinsic moral worth to education. He concludes with a tentative justification of his own and a call for a more comprehensive engagement between Kant's moral theory and the philosophy of education for purposes of understanding what constitutes the moral core of education.
