Is It Possible to Teach Values without Social Psychology?
Beckley, Patricia; Coskun, Kerem; Kara, Cihan
International Journal of Progressive Education, v14 n6 p38-50 2018
Although values are closely related to moral psychology, morality is a developmental problem in psychology. However, what the problem is, is to confine to reduce development and maturation to individual psychology. The fact that social-psychological characteristics of the values have not been emphasized, indicates concerns of the integrity of the development. All of the values in teaching approaches solely employ moral reasoning in schools. This paper articulates why theories of the social psychology, which explain social influence and process as determinants of the behaviour are not used in the context of value education.
