Moral Development


Gaining A02 is a formula
this is a huge topic remember
Supporting Evidence or theories --> build your argument
Challenging Evidence or Theories --> question your argument
Assess the quality of the Arguments on grounds of Methodology
Moral Development progresses over time!
let's look at some examples
Turiel argued against Kolhberg's idea of distinct stages and the assumption that moral reasoning is a single, unitary phenomenon.
Participants do not always give repsonses indicating consitency
in one particular stage. During an interview for example they may indicate different levels of reasoning through a variety of repsonses.
Responses that are scored at higher levels may be more sophisticated simply because the respondent is more educated and has the language ability to produce more complex arguments. Perhaps the moral dilemma technique measure level of education rather than moral reasoning?
