Kohlberg Moral Development

Describes Kohlberg’s 3 stages of moral development: Pre-moral, conventional and post-conventional. Each stage is accompanied by two defining characteristics e.g. Individualism and exchange during the pre-moral stage. These stages are a useful example of beta bias (a type of gender bias) due to the use of an all-male sample and being generalised to represent universal moral development.
