Lectures, Part I: "The Relevance of Moral Competence for Social Behavior." (July 2017)
"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.
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
I’m really looking forward to the second lecture."

Lectures, Part II: "The Meaning and Measurement of Moral Competence." (July 2017)
Lind, how did you get interested in moral competence?" Conversation
of students and staff of the University of California at Irvine with
Georg Lind, hosted by Prof. John Whiteley, Sierra Project: https://youtu.be/Zjf79AVkv0w (Nov. 2014).
"I also watched
the earlier video in which you talked about how you became involved
with studies of morality, including your tale of how the subject was
thrust upon you when you had to come to terms in your own mind with
Germany’s Nazi past. Powerful, beautiful, and exquisitely moving."
Prof. em. Dr. Richard Felder, University of North Carolina, Raleigh NC
