Emile's Moral Development. A Rousseauan Perspective on Kohlberg.
Simpson, Evan
Human Development, v26 n4 p198-212 Jul-Aug 1983
Uses Rousseau's "Emile" to explicate Kohlberg's characterization of moral development and to illuminate several theoretical problems in Kohlberg's cognitive-developmental account. Analysis supports contentions that Kohlberg's concept of morality is unduly narrow and suggests that his one-sidedly rationalistic approach exaggerates the behavioral potential of moral education.
