The Narrative Approach to Moral Development: From the Epistemic Subject to Dialogical Selves.
Day, James M.; Tappan, Mark B.
Human Development, v39 n2 p67-82 Mar-Apr 1996
A narrative approach to moral development sees a role for language in moral experience and regards the self as dialogic, or relational, as opposed to the epistemic self of the cognitive-developmental approach. This article reviews empirical foundations of the narrative approach, explores the dialogic conception of the self, and considers implications of the narrative approach for theory and research. (BC)
