Reflections on Narrative Approaches to Moral Development.
Lourenco, Orlando
Human Development, v39 n2 p83-99 Mar-Apr 1996
Compares narrative approaches to Kohlberg's theory of moral development along five dimensions: values relevance, legitimacy, universality, rationality, and commensurability. Argues that, contrary to Kohlberg's theory, narrative approaches may lead to contradiction in epistemology, nihilism in moral choices, and opportunism in relationships. Suggests that narrative approaches may lose their contextual, nonnormative character when they become theories of moral development.(Author/BC)
