Sample text

Eschewing Socrates' ironic "ignorance'' on the subject of virtue, Aristotle confidently enumerates a list of "intellectual'' and "moral" excellences claiming that virtue is a set of unique dispositions, a state of character, a "knowing how to like and dislike the proper things" that makes a person good and leads ultimately to happiness. " (p. 80). Aristotle's answer to these questions, unlike Socrates', is that happiness results from the acquisition of particular virtues acquired through training, habituation, and lifelong character development.

I wouldn't even know where or how to begin to shape character or what morality to teach. Besides, aren't the school years too late in a child's life to start forming character? The other teacher remarked: Yes, but I liked it when he said that whether we know it or not, we are always teaching morality. He's right. All of education is moral education. We're always shaping character, and, as far as I'm concerned, it's never too late to do this. Your morality sticks out like a sore thumb, just as mine does.

John Dewey, My Pedagogic Creed, 1897/1959 There is nothing deep inside each of us, no common human nature, no built-in human solidarity, to use a moral reference point. There is nothing to people except what has been socialized into themtheir ability to use language, and thereby to exchange beliefs and desires with other people.
