Abstract: Of the three aspects of moral development??the development of empathy, moral reasoning and related problem?solving strategies??we know least about empathy. Possible reasons for this are explored. Some of the relevant literature is reviewed. A new stage?theory by M. L. Hoffman is described which shows how the development of person permanence, the capacity for role?taking, and the awareness of personal identity may create the conditions under which the young child moves from a primitive response to the mother's physical distress to sympathetic distress, altruism, and eventually to guilt. The article concludes with implications for socialization, comments relating to future research, and a comprehensive bibliography
