Title/titre:

Is ‘moral reasoning’ still a viable objective in professional and applied ethics education? A voyage of hope and despair through the recent cognitive science of morality

Abstract:

Large amounts of converging research findings in behavioral ethics and other cognitive sciences of morality have in recent years raised an important challenge to the view that ethical behavior is more likely to occur when conscious moral reasoning takes the lead. In light of the picture of moral reasoning painted by the new synthesis in moral psychology, this paper asks: Is “moral reasoning” still a viable objective in ethics education? Answering with a qualified “yes”, it offers a proposal for how ethics education might take into account the recent revolution in thinking about the complex relationship between moral reasoning, moral judgment and ethical behavior.
