Abstract

<p>Some researchers, using the apprenticeship analogy, have shown that moral education as an initiation into the practices of a community provides a valuable insight into character-formation (Bildung) without engaging in either indoctrination or radical moral relativism. However, investigation into how to recognize the otherness of children in understanding moral education as initiation has been limited. This paper illustrates how the limitation can be addressed based of the ideas of John McDowell and Robert Brandom. McDowell suggests that we cannot perceive an object until we acquire the concept of it. He subsequently analogizes moral judgment to perception implying that we can try to perceive the moral value more accurately than we have ever perceived According to Brandom, we are in the arena in which our commitments to use a concept are evaluated by each other. It is possible that in this arena our way of using the concept changes dynamically by other people's evaluation. Based on these theories, I consider how the utterance "I see X as Y" functions in this social arena. Since the utterance expresses the perception of the utterer, it shows us the possibility of his/her otherness. It also forces us to try to appreciate the truth of the world because the utterer may see a truth we have yet to see.</p>
