(p.238) 10 Conclusion
Moral Development and Reality

John C. Gibbs

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores growth beyond the superficial in morality. Drawing on the theories of Lawrence Kohlberg, Martin Hoffman, and Jonathan Haidt, it describes motivationally and qualitatively distinct categories of knowledge and discusses the major strands of moral development: the right and the good, moral reciprocity and empathy, the primarily cognitive and the primarily affective. It concludes with some final thoughts on moral perception and moral behavior in relation to a deeper reality of human interconnectedness.

Keywords:   morality, Lawrence Kohlberg, Martin Hoffman, Jonathan Haidt, knowledge, moral development, moral reciprocity, empathy, moral perception, moral behavior
