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.
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."

"Dr. 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: (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
