re: book contents

Here’s the info on the latest book that I am reading. Seems to be interesting so far. I have said for a while that there are deep philosophical ramifications for Kohlberg to claim a moral standard that transcends culture-specificity. His first essay (which is the only one not written specifically for this book) recognizes that and talks about it. It is really neat to hear him discuss the different philosophical stances in terms of his model.
