Originally published in 1974 Values and Moral Development in Higher Education deals practically with various aspects of the impact of higher educational processes, recognising a need for these to be inter-related and understood within a common framework. It takes the form of a set of contributions whose authors have sought to relate their perspectives and experiences by reference to John Wilson’s philosophical analyses of the nature of moral maturity and the possible aims of moral education, and, where possible, to each other.
