Journal of Moral Education 24 (2):175-183 (1995)
Abstract
Abstract The concept of levels of moral maturity in psychology focuses on character formation in children's development. Virtue theory in ethics, with its concern for character, can be helpful in pointing out the ethical implications of much of the current work with children. This paper ties together several concepts in virtue theory with the current information on children's moral development. The paper argues for the usefulness of some very ancient ethical concepts
