The Moral Audience: On the Narrative Mediation of Moral "Judgment" and Moral "Action."
Day, James M.
New Directions for Child Development, n54 p27-42 Win 1991
The role of narrative and dramatic processes in mediating and shaping both moral judgment and moral action, two processes central to moral development, is examined. The notion of the "moral audience," in which individuals seem to rehearse, review, and redefine their moral actions, is proposed and illustrated. (LB)
