Kahn, Peter H., Jr. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
One of the overarching problems of the world today is that too many people see themselves as dominating other groups of people, and dominating nature. That is a root problem. And thus part of a core solution builds from Kohlberg's commitment to a universal moral orientation, though extended to include not only all people but the more-than-human…

Warren, Michael T.; Wright, Jennifer Cole; Snow, Nancy E. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
We appreciate and respond to Cokelet's thoughtful criticisms of our book. First, he points to deliberative forms of practical wisdom as objectionable to anti-rationalist's. In response, we point to non-conscious (yet complex) forms of deliberation that occur as individuals automatically process and respond to virtue-relevant stimuli. Second,…

Snow, Nancy E. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
My remarks will outline, from a philosopher's perspective, challenges and opportunities that I see for a science of virtue. I will touch on three topics: (1) ensuring that the studies are philosophically useful; (2) grappling with issues of measurement; and (3) next steps in moving a science of virtue forward. I approach (1) and (2) through…

Walker, David Ian – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
There is a tendency for research on morality to focus on the individual, sometimes at the expense of context, using overly individual notions of the person. To some extent, this is an understandable consequence of disciplinary focus, and a scientific need to break phenomena down into manageable parts. I will advocate incorporating sociological…

Fowers, Blaine J. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
The purpose of this paper is to argue that social science is an inherently moral enterprise. There are four reasons to see science as a moral endeavor based on the neo-Aristotelian recognition that morality is centered on human goods (e.g., justice and knowledge), not just right action. First, science is guided by epistemic values (e.g., accuracy,…

Schwartz, Barry – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
Many thinkers are accustomed to separating facts and values--knowledge and morality. They believe that morality enters into the choices scientists and scholars make about what is worth studying, but after that, the cold logic of evidence assessment takes over. This sells science and scholarship short. I will suggest that science and scholarship,…

Michalski, Joseph H. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
Science is an ethical community whose practitioners aim to discover information about the natural world and to explain discernible patterns that might be detected. Those who pursue science generally embrace certain epistemic values that help establish the moral boundaries of the community, while the twin pillars of rationality and empiricism serve…

Stichter, Matt – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
Psychological research has revealed that there is a strong tendency for people to believe that they have a 'true self', and to believe that this true self is inherently morally good. This would seemingly be very good news for virtue theorists, since this may help to promote virtue development. While there are some obvious benefits to people having…

Lamb, Michael; Dykhuis, Elise M.; Mendon├ža, Sara E.; Jayawickreme, Eranda – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
In the last century, higher education has witnessed a shift away from explicit character education. Although scholarship has recently reemerged on the importance of character in college, there are almost no empirical investigations of courses intentionally designed to impact student character at the college level. The current study examines an…

Kotsonis, Alkis – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
My aim in this paper is to examine the epistemic habits that agents develop through frequent social media usage. I point out that extensive social media usage is conducive to the development of closed-mindedness and unreflective thinking and accordingly argue that social media act as inadvertent educators of epistemic vices. I contend that…

Ho, Li-Ching; Barton, Keith C. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
This paper makes the case for including "critical harmony" as a complement to justice within civic education. The concept of harmony is significant for civic education because it acknowledges the crucial role that relationships play in society--an important moral, ethical, and social ideal in many cultures around the world. Harmony must…

McGrath, Robert E.; Han, Hyemin; Brown, Mitch; Meindl, Peter – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
Having an agreed-upon definition of character education would be useful for both researchers and practitioners in the field. However, even experts in character education disagree on how they would define it. We attempted to achieve greater conceptual clarity on this issue through a prototype analysis in which the features perceived as most central…

Han, Hyemin; Dawson, Kelsie J. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
Although some previous studies have investigated the relationship between moral foundations and moral judgment development, the methods used have not been able to fully explore the relationship. In the present study, we used Bayesian Model Averaging (BMA) in order to address the limitations in traditional regression methods that have been used…

Swartz, Sharlene; Nyamnjoh, Anye; Arogundade, Emma; Breakey, Jessica; Bockarie, Abioseh; Osezua, Oghoadena C. – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
When opposing injustice, the failure to recognise wrong or translate knowledge into action are two problems with which moral education has to contend. The notion of 'social restitution' can be a helpful concept in addressing these challenges because it locates restitution at the level of interpersonal and communal moral responsibility. This is…

Chen, Wei-Lin; Chan, Yun-Wen – Journal of Moral Education, 2022
This study aims to explore the relationships between different types of student engagement and moral reasoning development among U.S. college students. Using the Wabash National Study of Liberal Arts Education, a longitudinal dataset, and applying fixed-effect and random-effects models, the results indicate that various types of student…
