This book contains the final formulation of his view of the end point of moral development (Stage 6). Habermass insightful response to that formulation, which seeks to fit Kohlbergs perceptions into the framework of a communicative ethics, is an important extension of his own moral theory.In three parts, the essays map out the relationship between philosophy and psychology in the study of the moral domain, explore the way the moral point of view is understood within Kohlbergs cognitive-developmental model, and discuss the place of moral development in terms of various models of personality and decision making.The contributors are Augusto Blasi, Dwight R.
