Abstract
Moral education is based on the principle of confirming the value of human beings, which leads people to a true "adult" state. This is similar to the enlightenment rational thought represented by Kant and others. The principle of freedom and critical principles of enlightenment rationality lay the foundation for the development of subjective moral education. In the stage of "independence of human beings based on the dependence of things", the rapid development of modernity has led to the "rationality supremacy" phenomenon of "rational and worthless" and the paradox of enlightenment rationality. Marx and Habermas's critique of instrumental rationality and the reconstruction of enlightenment rationality have important implications for contemporary moral education, that is, the unity of practical rationality and communicative rationality.
