Abstract

GOERGEN, Pedro. Education and values in the contemporary world. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2005, vol.26, n.92, pp. 983-1011. ISSN 0101-7330.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302005000300013.

This paper explores one of the most highlighted and controversial theme of contemporary men and society: the foundations of moral values and moral education. Faced with the serious implications of the scientific and technological trends on the vital areas of people, society and nature itself, ethic has become a universal, very pressing issue. From a historical point of view, and based on a definition of the concept of value, the author exposes its individualistic, social, post-modern and theoretical-critical aspects. He then concludes with some observations on the formulation of the moral subject. The whole work is impregnated with the views of education.

Keywords : Values; Ethic; Moral; Moral education; Moral subject; Communicative action.
