Abstract

Background: Different personal and social problems originate from the tensions of individual choice, social practices, and morality. Focus of discussion: This article explores the 4 philosophical thoughts (absolute moral relativism, reductive naturalism, autonomous individualism, narcissistic hedonism) that influence philosophy, religion, and the decline of modernity. How are they related with moral education? What are their hindrances to the effective implementation of moral education. Conclusion: Moral education needs to guide students to hold on the moral boundaries, to align properly the various moral values and priorities, to identify the ends and means, to emphasis the legitimacy of the needs of individual and the group, to distinguish between what is good and what they like, aversion to evil, like goodness, and to restrain self desires.
