Use of Anger for Moral Education in Universities
Won-Chul Kim
대학 윤리교육에서 분노의 감정 활용 방안
Today our moral education in university seems to be tied up to the dualism of ‘education for civility’ versus ‘education for moral character. It is because of this dualistic vision that people have taken a negative attitude toward emotional learning programs, even though they agreed on the role of the emotions in moral life. Normally the purpose of the civility education consists in the progress of critical thinking and rational moral reasoning, but that fact does not explain why we have to exclude emotions in moral education. A person as citizen does not differ from the person as a man. If we accept it, the education for civility and the education for moral character must be unified into a single model. As a trial model, I developed in this paper a way of using the anger for university moral education. The emotion of anger has a deep relation with critical thinking and with self-esteem, so that it may offer a opportunity to mediate between these two conflicting paradigms of moral education.
Key Words: Education for Civility, Education for Moral Character, Social and Emotional Learning, Anger, Double Cognitive Mediation Model
