If anyone could get the audio out of that video, I would really like to release it as a podcast...

I have the MP3. How would you like it?

EDIT: Clarification! I mean do you want me to just email it to you or what? It's a 10.5mb file.

EDIT 2: I went ahead and emailed it to you as I'm going to be AFK for a day or so.

For what it's worth, her UC Berkeley developmental psychology lecture series is excellent and definitely worth a listen...

Two-and-a-half-year-olds already recognize the difference between moral
principles and conventional principles. You can ask them if it would be
okay to hit someone at daycare if everyone said it would be okay,
versus asking them whether it would be okay to not hang up your coat in
the cubby if everyone said it would be okay. These children say it’s
never okay to hit someone, but whether or not you have to put your
clothes in the cubby could change from daycare to daycare.

The simple truth is that life is short, and every hour we spend unhappy, or frustrated, or angry with ourselves is an hour that we will never live again.

I found this discussion between Alison Gopnik and Joshua Knobe, an experimental philosopher at Yale. They discuss among other things the moral judgement capacities of children. I think this discussion (videocast) is highly relevant for us.

I agree! I would have liked to have been taught developmental
psychology by her. She has a training as a philosopher, and you can
feel it in how she thinks and teaches to think. She says raising
children is the most important task of all. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing, Greg.

I did a search for Joshua Knobe and this was the only thread that came up. I don't know anything about him, but I enjoyed this podcast of him being interviewed. They touch on moral intentions and determinism vs free will. It's 16 minutes long.
