Abstract: This article presents R.S. Peters’ theory of moral education embedded in his broad conception of morality. The author examines Peters’ views against the background of Kohlberg’s stage theory of moral development; hence, the positions of both thinkers are interwoven throughout the discussion. It addresses some central issues relevant to moral education such as, for example: cognitive and affective aspects of morality, and the acquisition of virtues. In the article the author argues that Peters’ account of moral development and moral education provides supplementation for the somewhat narrow theory developed by Kohlberg, thus establishing a broader framework relevant to moral education.
