Separating Judicial from Legislative Reasoning in Moral Dilemma Interviews.
Langford, Peter E.
Child Development, v68 n6 p1105-16 Dec 1997
Two studies used a modification of the weakly interpretive scoring method of Langford and D'Cruz to examine judicial and legislative reasoning. Findings were in accord with modified versions of Piaget's and Kohlberg's views and contradicted Gibbs' theory. There were three stages of legislative reasoning between 7 and 21 years: heteronomy or egocentrism, local groups, and wider groups. (Author)
