Ways of Knowing, Learning and Making Moral Choices

Journal of Moral Education 16 (3):226-239 (1987)
Abstract This paper explores the epistemological dimensions in the thinking of adolescent girls. Using two different kinds of data ?? (1) typical constructions of moral conflicts reported by adolescent girls that reveal either a justice or care (response) focus; and (2) girls? responses to a story completion exercise ?? this paper identifies epistemological perspectives in girls? thinking that link ideas of self, knowing and morality. An hypothesized model of ?learner's interests and goals? and ?approaches to knowing? related to these conceptions of self and morality is presented and implications for teaching are discussed
