MORAL EDUCATION IN THE CULTURE OF TEMPTATIONS
Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The question of moral education becomes particularly significant in the era of postmodernism. The traditional set of values, cultural and social conventions, the Decalogue, God's law and immutable moral rules are often perceived as an unnecessary burden for the moral development, a burden that can only be taken up at discretion, and is never seen as a permanent factor and a necessary point of reference for educational efforts. The authoress discusses the dangers and temptations which occur for education. She concludes that the culture of temptations, dominant in the post-modern reality, is slowly moving from the phase of encouragement to the phase of realization, leading to an educational nihilism, an axiological vacuum, and a moral desert.
