Eisenberg, Nancy; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v27 n5 p849-58 Sep 1991
Examined prosocial moral reasoning in children during an 11-year period. Found that (1) hedonistically oriented reasoning declined until adolescence; (2) reasoning based on others' needs increased until early adolescence and then declined; and (3) girls' overall reasoning was higher than boys'. Found some association of prosocial reasoning with prosocial behavior and empathy. (BC)
