Billy Budd and Kohlberg's Stages of Moral Development
Hagen, Lyman B.
Journal of Thought, 12, 4, 318-25, Nov 77
With Kohlberg's six stages of moral development in mind, author shows how the characters and ethical framework of "Billy Budd" may be classified. In doing so he emphasizes that the deductive system of ethical thinking is seriously wanting in the exercise of justice. States that Kohlberg is attempting to bring about moral maturity by developing the cognitive ability to make decisions about moral problems. (Author/RK)
