Moral versus Social-Conventional Reasoning: A Narrative and Cultural Critique.
Witherell, Carol S.; Edwards, Carolyn Pope
Journal of Moral Education, v20 n3 p293-304 1991

Discusses the individual, social, and relational dimensions of morality and the cultural context of moral development. Calls for continuing narrative and anthropological approaches to the study of moral development. (DK)
