Connectedness and Separateness: Cognitive Style or Moral Orientation?

Journal of Moral Education 16 (3):214-225 (1987)
Abstract This paper reports a study of ?connectedness? vs ?separateness? orientation in adolescents? reasoning on friendship, loyalty and understanding of political and social order. Conflict resolution in the connectedness orientation was found to focus on negotiation and an attempt to represent all points of view; in the separateness orientation the focus was on the advocacy of rules or codes of practice. There was a strong relationship between orientation and gender. The paper considers the implications of these findings for Gilligan's perspective of ?two voices?, and for strategies for moral education
