Kohlberg's History Kholberg's Stages
Moral Reasoning Kohlberg Notes ? In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer. There was one drug that the doctors thought might save her. It was a form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered. the drug was expensive to make, but the druggist was charging ten times what the drug cost him to make. He paid $400 for the radium and charged $4,000 for a small dose of the drug. The sick woman's husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the money and tried every legal means, but he could only get together about $2,000, which is half of what it cost. He told the druggist that his wife was dying, and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist said, "No, I discovered the drug and I'm going to make money from if." So, having tried every legal means, Heinz gets desperate and considers breaking into the man's store to steal the drug for his wife. **Preconventional Level**

3) Typically argue, that it was right to steal the drug because

4) Many say they understand that Heinz's motives were good, but they cannot condone the theft.

5) They do not generally favor breaking laws; nevertheless, the wife’s right to live is a moral right that must be protected.

6) All parties--the pharmacist, Heinz, and his wife-- should take on the roles of the others. "Good Boy- Good Girl" Universal Ethical
