The psychology of moral development and moral reasoning

The psychology of moral development and moral reasoning

Psychologist  Lawrence Kohlberg has developed an interesting theoretical structure  allowing one to understand the logic of moral reasoning in terms of  three levels: Pre-Conventional, Conventional, and Post-Conventional; and  six different stages, two for each level. According to Kohlberg, pretty  much the only individuals to score at the Post-Conventional level are  those individuals who have graduated from college or have had some  exposure to higher education. The Post-Conventional level of thinking  reflects the phenomenom that the individual can morally appraise the  laws, customs and institutions of one’s society against higher moral  considerations such as human dignity and justice. For this unit’s  discussion topic you will need to read “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, by  Dr. Martin Luther King . Discuss how Dr. King’s justification for his  civil disobedience might be classified as a Post- Conventional, stage #5  method of moral judgement. Identify and discuss those moral values  which are appealed to by Dr. King in explaining why he had a moral  obligation to disobey the civil laws of Birmingham, Alabama.

Make sure that you submit two posts: (1) “Main Post” – one post should address the discussion topic. (2) “Response Post”  – one post should be a response to another person`s post. Each post  needs to be 15-20 sentences in length. Also, make sure that you read all  or almost all of the posts of your classmates. You are reminded that in  your discussion posts you will be expected to show that you are  integrating ideas from the assigned unit readings and the other  resources provided (articles from newspapers, magazines, journals, and  videos) into your posts. Failure to do this will result in a lower  discussion grade and a successful discussion post that refers to  specific readings and videos will receive a higher discussion grade.  Your “Main Post” needs to be submitted by midnight on Thursday. Your “Response Post”  needs to be submitted by midnight on Sunday.
