The contributors to The Moral of the Story, all preeminent political theorists, are unified by their concern with the instructive power of great literature. This thought-provoking combination of essays explores the polyvalent moral and political impact of classic world literatures on public ethics through the study of some of its major figures-including Shakespeare, Dante, Cervantes, Jane Austen, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Robert Penn Warren, and Dostoevsky. Positing the uniqueness of literature's ability to promote dialogue on salient moral and intellectual virtues, editor Henry T. Edmonson III has culled together a wide-ranging exploration of such fundamental concerns as the abuse of authority, the nature of good leadership, the significance of 'middle class virtues' and the needs of adolescents. This collection reinvigorates the study of classic literature as an endeavor that is not only personally intellectually satisfying, but also an inimitable and unique way to enrich public discourse.

The problem this project attempts to solve is to develop a workable moral education in light of the clash between religious forms of moral education and U.S. Supreme Court decisions concerning them. The concept of story and storytelling has been suggested as a unifying focus for disparate prescriptions for moral education. Several recent approaches to moral storytelling have been proposed. The approaches of William Bennett, Nel Noddings, and Herbert Kohl are among those which have attempted to combine moral education and storytelling within the last decade. Bennett is identified with other theorists whose primary concern is the moral content of a story. Noddings is identified as a process theorist, whose primary concern is the process of moral storytelling, not the content. Kohl is identified as a reflection theorist, whose approach challenges tradition in the hope of creating a more moral society. Each one of these three approaches attempts to provide a comprehensive program of moral education, but they fall short of that goal. The purpose of this project, then, is to construct a storytelling moral education program that improves upon earlier approaches. Using the three levels of moral thinking posited by R.M. Hare, a three-level approach to moral storytelling is proposed. The intuitive, critical, and meta-ethical levels of moral thinking that Hare refers to are used to frame a new, three-level, approach to moral storytelling. The three-level approach combines content, process, and reflection into a unified prescription for moral education. Thus, a more comprehensive plan for moral education through storytelling is developed, one that respects traditional forms of moral education while remaining within the parameters set by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Moral Lessons in African Folktales

This book challenges us to take a cursory glance at our contemporary world, where modern man’s scientific and technological ingenuity has led him to soar thorough the galaxy and made the heavens part of his domain; and contrast that with his level of morality today. Open any newspaper or listen to the radio and television news and you can’t help but lament on the appalling moral depravity and obscene behavior of our contemporary man. With this intractable moral depravity on the ascendancy, the author nostalgically reminiscences the upright morality of yesteryears, and admonishes us to heed Plato’s philosophical advice: ‘now since men are by nature acquisitive, jealous, combative, and erotic, how shall we persuade them to behave themselves? By the policeman’s omnipresent club? {now, AK 47}. It is a brutal method, costly and irritating. There is a better way, and this is by lending to the moral requirements of the community. Throughout this book the author emphasizes the significance of proper moral education in shaping the character of children, youngsters and even adults, and reminds us: ‘morals are the rules by which society exhorts its members and associations to behavior consistent with its 'order, security and growth’ {Will & Ariel Durant}. The author noted that in traditional African societies, the wise elders, like the ancient Greek philosophers, strongly emphasized the teachability of moral values and deliberately inculcated them into their youngsters. The stories in this book are folktales filled with moral lessons that have been handed down from many generations to the present in many African countries from Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroons, Liberia, the Gambia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania to Zimbabwe. The traditional African elders successfully utilized these folktales to socialize their youngsters to the moral requirements of their society to insure stability, harmonious relations, order, security and growth.

After reading The Tortoise and the Hare, it may feel instinctive to conclude that the moral of the story is “slow and steady wins the race”. However, research has shown that this is not so obvious to children, who tend to focus on story-specific details like napping in the middle of the race. In learning the moral, it is crucial to generalize. Otherwise, we would need a fable for every unique circumstance. What computational process underlies our seemingly intuitive ability to extract a generalizable moral of a story? Fables play integral roles across cultures and societies. From a young age, children are read fables to instill moral values. If we are build an artificial human intelligence system, we must first answer this question. In this thesis, I take a step toward fulfilling my vision by building MAXIM, a new module in the Genesis Story Understanding System. From a fable and a description of a past experience written in English, MAXIM extracts and generalizes the moral of the fable and explains it in English. For example, from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Math Aficionado, MAXIM concludes It’s ok if you are different because Valuable Rudolph is different. Notably, idiosyncrasies of the story, such as having a red nose, are not stated in the moral. MAXIM extracts a generalizable moral by first interpreting both stories on an emotional level. By explaining the emotional states and their transitions, the system can identify the moral challenge. Then, MAXIM aligns the stories by emotional states to abstract away story-specific details. In developing MAXIM, I have distilled four principles for extracting a generalizable moral: Viewpoint Character Principle, Reversal of Fortune Principle, Emotional Explanation Principle, and Emotional Alignment Principle. Though internalized by adults, these principle are learned, perhaps unconsciously, by children.
