Abstract

 For educationalists, especially those who are working on MORAL EDUCATION, it is crucial to establish a relation between morality and reason. This is because the moral theories can be regarded as foundations for MORAL EDUCATION only if they see morality as a rational matter and moral statements as cognitive statements. In this article, the theory of ETHICAL EGOISM will be examined by referring to its relation with reason and RATIONALITY. In order to explain the problems besetting the matter, and to defend the RATIONALITY of ETHICAL EGOISM, some suggestons for solving the problems will be made. At the end, by providing an interpretation of ETHICAL EGOISM on the basis of which this theory is shown not to be against altruism but a kind of altruism, the RATIONALITY of ETHICAL EGOISM will be defended. On this basis, the theory of ETHICAL EGOISM can be seen as moral a theory which provides groundwork for MORAL EDUCATIONal theory.
