PHILOSOPHICAL AND METAETHICAL PERSPECTIVE Divergent approaches to moral versus character education are based, implicitly or explicitly, on more encompassing political and philosophical ideologies. Such was explicitly the case for Kohlberg (1981), and it is for me. Kohlberg’s perspective on moral education is rooted in Kantian epistemology and Rawls’s theory of justice; mine in dialectical materialist epistemol-ogy (see Marx [1858/1971] and Engels [1888/1941]) and rule utilitarianism (Mill, 1861/2002).

Ideal discourse requires a freely chosen communicative level playing field in which advantages of social status and differences in communicative competence are suspended. Habermas (1979, 1993) claimed that when consensual interaction is disrupted by disagreements concerning the truth of contentious assertions or the rightness of norms, agreement can only be restored by a process akin to ideal discourse. Although ideal discourse may be practiced in protected venues such as the Supreme Court and some jury trials, under most adversarial circumstances participants with conflicting interests will instead bring political weapons to bear, and compromises will be made based on relative power.
