Tobin, Theresa W.; Moon, Dawne – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Philosophical views defending shame as a catalyst for moral virtue are at odds with empirical data indicating that shame often yields psychologically unhealthy responses for those who feel it, and often motivates in them morally worse action than whatever occasioned the initial shame experience. Our interdisciplinary ethnographic study analyzes…

Bauer, Jack J.; DesAutels, Peggy – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
The road to a virtuous life is typically met with roadblocks and detours. Life stories reveal the courses people chart around those roadblocks in their attempts to cultivate virtuous lives in non-idealized circumstances. Life stories feature difficult choices (e.g., between love and work, between pursuing personal interests and caring for others…

Ferrari, Michel; Bang, Hyeyoung; Ardelt, Monika; Feng, Zhe – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
How do different forms of education contribute to value preferences? Clearly, informal education through personal experiences that shape one's sense of identity and frame cultural expectations and opportunities (as indexed by culture, gender and age-cohort), non-formal education through religious traditions and formal state-mandated education all…

Gomez-Lavin, Javier; Prinz, Jesse – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Recent studies demonstrate a moral self effect: continuity in moral values is crucial to ascriptions of identity in and over time. Since Locke, personal identity has been referred to as a 'forensic' concept, meaning that it plays a role in attributions of moral responsibility. If moral values are crucial to identity over time, then perceived…

Condon, Paul; Dunne, John; Wilson-Mendenhall, Christine – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
In psychological science, mindfulness and compassion are thought to promote physical health, mental well-being and even virtuous character. Yet in Buddhist philosophy, mindfulness and compassion can cause suffering when the two are not balanced. One key mechanism of mindfulness is 'dereification,' which amounts to experiencing one's thoughts just…

Spezio, Michael; Peterson, Gregory; Roberts, Robert C. – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Exploring the concept of virtuous humility helps to highlight paths of human flourishing. Yet humility is difficult to study because it is often stereotyped as shame or self-abasement, it tends to defy uniform conceptualization across contexts and cultures, definitions are difficult to justify, and operationalizing humility challenges standard…

Bedford-Petersen, Cianna; DeYoung, Colin G.; Tiberius, Valerie; Syed, Moin – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Interdisciplinary research on the relation of well-being to personality, virtue and life experience is impeded by lack of agreement about the nature of well-being. Psychologists tend to reduce well-being to various subjective evaluations (e.g., life satisfaction or sense of meaning in life). Philosophers tend to reject these reductions but often…

Cokelet, Bradford; Fowers, Blaine J. – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
This article argues that ordinary virtue trait attributions presuppose the existence of "realistic" traits that fall short of, for example, Aristotelian ideals and that debate about the existence of virtue traits should be reoriented in the light of this fact. After clarifying and motivating that basic thesis, we discuss what the…

Etxebarria, Itziar; Conejero, Susana; Pascual, Aitziber; Ortiz Barón, María José; Apodaca, Pedro – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Moral pride has been found to be a positive component of moral life. Nevertheless, this emotion has been the object of little attention and hardly any studies focus on gender differences in this regard. Is this emotion more intense in girls than in boys? Five studies on "authentic" moral pride, with sample groups in different age ranges…

Yaghoubi Jami, Parvaneh; Mansouri, Behzad; Thoma, Stephen J.; Han, Hyemin – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
The extent to which individuals with a variety of cultural backgrounds differ in empathic responsiveness is unknown. This article describes the differences in trait empathy in one independent and one interdependent society (i.e., the US and Iran, respectively). The analysis of data collected from self-reported questionnaires answered by 326 adults…

Jia, Fanli; Krettenauer, Tobias; Li, Lihong – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Albeit the moral identity construct has gained a pivotal status in moral psychology, previous research largely neglected cultural differences. The present study investigated moral identity from a cross-cultural perspective by comparing Western (Canadian) and Eastern (Chinese) cultures in three different contexts: family, school and…

The Internet, new media and social change have created issues requiring digital citizenship education, particularly within the socio-cultural context of Chinese education. Recent digital citizenship standards for education developed by organizations such as the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) highlight the importance of…

Brüggemann, A. Jelmer; Forsberg, Camilla; Colnerud, Gunnel; Wijma, Barbro; Thornberg, Robert – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Bystander passivity has received increased attention in the prevention of interpersonal harm, but it is poorly understood in many settings. In this article we explore bystander passivity in three settings based on existing literature: patient abuse in health care; bullying among schoolchildren; and oppressive treatment of students by teachers.…

Heyes, Joshua Michael – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
The influential liberal philosophical approach to sex education fails to appreciate the moral complexities of young people's sexuality and relationships. The resultant pedagogies are limited to the morality of tolerance and acquisition of legal sexual consent, unaware that these very notions are supervened on by much wider and more complex…

Passini, Stefano – Journal of Moral Education, 2019
Studies on historical episodes of intergroup violence and conflicts have underlined the complicit role of bystanders in extreme intergroup dynamics. In regard to contemporary multicultural societies, the concept of intergroup indifference has recently been introduced, defined as being uncaring vis-à-vis arbitrary policies affecting other social…
