Moral Consideration. Why (not) Speak about Tolerance in Education?

Abstract [en]

The topic of this article is the

moral grammar of cultural conflicts,

and the question it

addresses is: What does it mean

to be morally thoughtful and

considerate in education? The

aim of the article is twofold. On

the one hand I critically examine

the response of the Swedish

National Agency for Education

to the controversy about burqa.

On the other hand the specific

cultural controversy about burqa

is used to examine whether the

Habermas concept of discourse

ethics could learn something

from the post-modern challenge

to this ethical question and its

consequences for educational

theory. Three different ways of

understanding moral consideration

are outlined in the article: an

extended form of equal treatment,

an increased ethical sensitivity

and an asymmetrical obligation

between human beings.
