Stage Acquisition and Stage Use. An Appraisal of Stage Displacement Explanations of Variation in Moral Reasoning.
Levine, Charles G.
Human Development, v22 n3 p145-64 1979
Evaluates the differing perspectives of Kohlberg and Turiel on moral reasoning. Both perspectives use stage displacement models to depict moral development and assume that as ontogenesis proceeds, the role played by earleir acquired moral stages becomes increasingly insignificant in comparison with the role played by more advanced stages. The displacement model is criticized and a nondisplacement model outlined. (Author/SS)
