Abstract [en]

As teachers we frequently face situations where we are expected to make moral judgements and act upon them as a part of our pedagogical practices. This is one reason why practitioners and researchers tend to agree on that teaching is an essentially moral practice. However, according to recent development within moral psychology, we often make judgements based on emotionally driven intuitions and afterwards make up reasons to explain them. This provides a challenge for the traditional views of moral education. Thus, the overall aim of this paper is to present and critically discuss what the new findings of moral psychology can contribute to moral education. Initially we will present the theory and argue why it seems to provide an important contribution to our understanding of the normative dimension of education. Finally, however, we will use philosophical method in order to critically examine of some of the core features of the model and discuss which consequences it has to, for instance, aspects of care which is inherent in an educational context.
