Chapter Summary

There is a great demand in modern society for people who can give reliable judgements. The requirement for skills in reaching judgements has increased at a time where both the traditional role patterns and the norms and values that offered a stable basis in the past have lost most of the influence they had on society. These skills can be learned. They are of particular importance to the Armed Forces. In military practice, impulsive decisions can easily have consequences that get out of hand, with a concomitant escalation in violence. This chapter examines how these skills can be learned, with particular emphasis on judgements in moral dilemmas. It examines the link between moral education on the one hand and reaching a judgement and dilemma training on the other hand. The chapter discusses a model for reaching judgements that has been developed by Bos.

Keywords: Bos; moral dilemmas; moral education; reaching judgements; reliable judgements
