Moral Education for Colleges and Universities

by Eugene O Iheoma

This work examines moral education generally, and in the Nigerian context. It seeks unity in theory and action, and points up false dichotomies in the philosophical tradition which exists in much contemporary discussion of moral education: that the development of reason in moral affairs is incompatible with the teaching of moral values. Against this dichotomy the author argues that both elements are integral. The chapters cover: the nature of morality and moral education; issues in moral education; models of moral education; sources of moral learning; teaching as a moral enterprise; and the prospects for moral education in Nigeria.
