Conversations and Lectures on Moral Competence at the University of California, Irvine
on video:

Part I: "The Relevance of Moral Competence for Social Behavior." (July 2017)


Review by Prof. Richard Felder, Raleigh NC:

I watched the first lecture, and was blown away by several aspects of it, not the least of which was the beautiful articulation and clarity of your English. I know you’ve spent a lot of time in English-speaking countries and it’s not surprising that you’re far above the level of most people who have learned English as a second language (or maybe it’s your third one—I don’t know). ... So, congratulations.

The content of your presentation was equally impressive. I was struck by the logic and clarity of your distinction between moral orientation and moral competence, and the importance of making that distinction whenever you discuss any aspect of morality. There were many other points that struck me, including your zinger about how understanding Trump’s supporters is more important than understanding Trump (I think a number of psychiatrists already have him pretty well figured out). Knowing my areas of interest as you do, however, it won’t surprise you to learn that the point that struck me most heavily was your short anecdote about the impact of moral training on students’ learning, even in a non-related subject like math. I don’t know if you plan to look more deeply into that phenomenon as part of your research, but I really hope you do—it could have a profound impact on pedagogical practices.

I’m really looking forward to the second lecture.. 

Part II: "The Meaning and Measurement of Moral Competence." (July 2017)
