Example text

Of particular interest here is that between the particular and the general. We may, for example, believe that the statement ‘You ought not to steal’ may be false under some circumstances as, for example when Hugo’s Jean Valjean (Hugo 1862) steals bread to feed a starving child, or that there could be societies in which our concept of property and therefore of theft do not apply. This, however, need not prevent us from believing with absolute conviction and justification that it would be wrong to steal this young man’s wallet here, now.

The objectivist may suppose that since truth is there to be discovered, those competent in the skills of reasoning will eventually discover it without the support of the teacher’s authority. For the subjectivist, if there is no moral truth to be discovered, all have a right to reach their own conclusions in their own rational, autonomous and defensible way. Both views are to be found among those who advocate the development of moral reasoning through participation in the discussion of moral issues.

We earlier saw how discovery of a source of absolute moral values would, in principle, enable us to develop a pure transmission model of moral education in which the educator was the agent of an authority, divine, personal, collective or abstract in which the educator was knowledgeable and pupils essentially ignorant or prone to backsliding. That such a source was rational rather than transcendental would not affect the issue, for those who could demonstrate the link between their demands and the overriding principle would win for themselves the moral right of absolute command.
