If you missed Pre-ToK session 6…

Here is the makeup assignment (It’s different from what your peers did in class.).

  1. Consider the Heinz dilemma.  Write your response and explanation to what you would do if you were in Heinz’s place.  Be sure to justify your answer with a rationale.
  2. Then, read the explanation of Kohlberg’s Stages of Moral Development (and compare them to Piaget’s stages of cognitive development).
  3. Considering your response to the Heinz dilemma, determine the stage that you are at.  List it and explain your assessment.
  4. Think about what that means.  Write your responses to the following: According to Heinz, where are you on the spectrum?  Where do you want to be?  Why would that level be best?
  5. Evaluate Kohlberg’s stages and explain whether or not you think they have merit.  Are they legitimate?  Is there a better evaluative tool for discussing moral actions?
  6. Now that you’ve done some thinking, you’re ready to show off.  Address, in a quality paragraph, the following questions:
    • What should guide our moral decision-making?
    • What constitutes moral behavior?
    • How should the ‘goodness’ of an act be determined?
