          Abstract

          This research has been carried out with the aim of determining the effectiveness of a Philosophy Education Program on the development of moral judgment, pro-social behavior and anger control among students. This experimental field study was a pre-test and post-test type with control group and conducting follow up stages. The statistical population of the study consisted of all second year High School female students in Ahwaz City: 40 students were selected out of 160 students by using a multistage cluster random sampling method and were assigned in an experimental group (20 people) and a control group (20 people) through simple random sampling. The experimental group was exposed to the Philosophy Education Program for 2 months and the control group didn’t receive any kind of intervention. The follow up stage was conducted after the post-test program and one and a half months after the intervention. Lotf Abadi's Ethical Development Questionnaires, Pro-social Behavior Questionnaire of Carole et al and Eysenck & Wilson's Aggression Questionnaire were used to collect information. Data analysis was conducted using Multivariate Covariance Analysis (MANCOVA) and ANCOVA's single-variable analysis method. At the significant level of p < 0.001, the research results showed that Philosophy Education affects the development of moral judgment, pro-social behavior and anger control among students and this result was persistent in the follow up phase.
