Cultural Psychology on Kohlberg - Dictionary of Arguments

Slater I 170
Kohlberg/cultural psychology: VsKohlberg: [The] evidence of contextual and cultural differences in moral judgments about lying (>Honesty/cultural psychology
, >Honesty/Kohlberg, >Morality/Kohlberg) strongly challenges the moral universality assumption of Kohlberg’s theory. It is clear that even young children are highly sensitive to contextual factors when making moral judgments about dishonesty, and that there are cross-cultural differences in social norms about lying.
