RSVP: Democracy, Morality, and Education Two-Day Conference by Dr. Georg Lind
Colleagues from UC Irvine are sponsoring a two-day workshop in order to make Dr. Georg Lind’s original moral competence approach to moral behavior and education more available to educators in the United States.
About Georg Lind
∙ Doctor of Social Science from the University of Konstanz &
∙ Doctor of Philosophy from the Catholic University of Eichstätt (both Germany),
∙ Apl. Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Konstanz

Born shortly after World War II, in 1947, Dr. Georg Lind’s interest in morality goes back to his adolescence when he learned about the atrocities of the Nazi dictatorship. How can we prevent this from happening again? How can we develop morality, peace, and democracy? His work contains this answer.

Lind was professor of psychology and researcher at the University of Konstanz, Germany. He was guest professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Universidad de Monterrey, and the Humboldt University at Berlin. He has lectured in Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Mexico, Poland, Switzerland, Greece, Italy, and the United States.

Recently, Dr. Lind published "How to Teach Morality: Promoting Deliberation and Discussion, Reducing Violence and Deceit". The book provides his new approach to great questions:
∙ What is morality?
∙ How can it be measured?
∙ How relevant is it for social (and anti-social) behaviors
∙ What is its nature and origin?
∙ How can it be taught?

The focus of Dr. Lind’s life’s work has been on:
∙ the re-conceptualization of morality on the basis of Socrates' dual-aspect-model
∙ the objective and valid measurement of internal moral competence,
∙ the empirical study of the relationship of internal moral competence to external social behavior, and
∙ the creation of an effective and practical method for fostering moral competence. The Konstanz Method of Dilemma Discussion (KMDD)

This workshop will focus on:
(a) the meaning and measurement of moral competence, and
(b) the procedure for clarifying the moral dilemmas which people face in tough decisions.

Dr. Lind's lectures will be digitally recorded and made available via the Internet in order to increase understanding of the meaning and measurement of moral competence, and the educational program associated with it.
