The inaugural volume in the Studies In Practical Theology series, Formation of the Moral Self provides a foundational understanding of the process of moral development and the structures of education that help initiate it.Johannes van der Ven here distinguishes between two modes of informal moral education (discipline and socialization) and fives modes of formal education (transmission, development, clarification, emotional formation, and character formation). He argues that the common denominator of all seven modes is "moral communication, " which can be defined as the ongoing process of moral exchange and understanding in the search for truth -- a search that leads to nothing less than the successful formation of the moral self.
