Abstract

The development with age of moral judgments was studied in three groups of Turkish children, adolescents, and young adults. Males 10 to 25 years old were studied in a rural village and two cities. Subjects responded to moral dilemmas and their responses were scored for stage of development. Cross-sectional and some longitudinal data showed that the stage sequence of development for all three Turkish groups was the same as has previously been found for other Western and non-Western samples. Some differences were found between the three Turkish groups; these were differences in rate of development through the sequence of stages.
