ETHICAL RELEVANCE OF CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN OUR CONTEMPORARY PEDAGOGY

The subject of corporal punishment is one which, though often discussed, is usually discussed without a reached consensus, for its real outflow lies too deep for the purposes of controversy. The mere conception and utility of flogging, as a deterrent from evil-doing, may, indeed, be a matter for argument, and its advocates may be rashly contended to take their stand on its efficacy; but to its opponents, this method of reasoning can never be fully conclusive, for how- ever clearly they may grasp the proofs that history gives of the uselessness of flogging, they must feel that, even if it were effective, there are other and higher reasons for condemning it. Thus, the issue of corporal punishment can be best described as a concern of virtue and vice in our contemporary pedagogy. In the light of various contending arguments, this paper seeks to examine the positioning power, practical prospects of corporal punishment and relevance of various moral theories in our contemporary pedagogy.
