[Narrative Approach to Moral Development.] Commentary.
Lapsley, Daniel K.
Human Development, v39 n2 p100-07 Mar-Apr 1996
Elaborates on some issues in the debate between Kohlberg's cognitive-developmental approach and a narrative, relativistic, approach to studies of moral development. Reviews the concept of self in both approaches, ideas on the Cartesian rationality underlying Kohlberg's theories, and the reliance of the self on language in narrative approaches. Identifies benefits and intellectual costs of adopting narrative approaches. (BC)
