Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805847510, Hardcover)The psychological study of moral development has expanded greatly, both in terms of the diversity of theoretical perspectives that are represented in the field, as well as in the range of topics that have been studied. This Handbook of Moral Development represents the diversity and multidisciplinary influences on current theorizing about the psychological study of moral development and the range and broad scope of topics being considered by scholars in the field. To highlight this diversity of topics, the book is organized around conceptual themes that reflect these different theoretical perspectives, and is divided into six parts: *Conscience, Socialization, and Internalization; *Structuralism and Moral Development Stages; *Social Domain Theory and Social Justice; *Social Interaction, Sociocultural, and Comparative Approaches; *Empathy, Emotions, and Aggression; and *Moral Education, Character Development, and Community Service. This Handbook contains a wealth of information about how morality has been defined, studied, and examined in children, adolescents, and adults. The chapters provide detailed summaries of current theory and research in the field of moral development, and will be of interest to scholars, policy makers, educators, and professionals who work with children. In addition, the text will contribute to the continued liveliness of the scholarly discourse about moral development and to new advances in theorizing and research.
