Language, Culture, and Moral Development: A Vygotskian Perspective.
Tappan, Mark B.
Developmental Review, v17 n1 p78-100 Mar 1997
Outlines a sociocultural perspective on the study of moral development grounded in Vygotskian theory, highlighting semiotic mediation of moral functioning via inner speech as inner moral dialog, the social origins of moral functioning, and sociocultural "situatedness" of moral development. Suggests that this perspective addresses persisting questions about origins of moral sensibility and differences in moral functioning. (Author/KDFB)
