This week in class, we’re reading “The Kohlberg Dilemmas” by Lawrence Kohlberg.
Lawrence Kohlberg was an American psychologist best known for his theories of moral development. Kohlberg explains there are six distinct stages of human moral development, and that a person may go through these stages throughout his or her life.
