In the last decade, a new literature has arisen, grounded in feminism, reconsidering morality, identity, and moral development. Professor Glennon applies these feminist-based ideas about moral development to a pedagogy of responsibility. She explores some of the ways in which this alternative view of moral development might affect our understanding of teaching. Professor Glennon shows that students must view themselves as capable, cared-for, and empowered in order to achieve an enlarged self-definition of professional responsibility and conceive of themselves as professionals in ways other than the dominant, privatized mode.
