Moral Development and Moral Education

Title: Moral Development and Moral Education

Author: R. S. Peters

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 1981

About the Author: Peters was a professional philosopher who specialized in philosophical psychology and philosophy of education. He famously coined the term ‘paradox of moral education’, a treatment of which can be found in chapter two of the present volume. Peters also directed his thinking toward the┬áconcept of education, ethics in education, and a critical analysis of Kohlbergian theory of development. His thinking on these ideas still remain germane to contemporary philosophical issues in education today, and the sheer scope of this thinking in topics related to education is something to be admired.
