Most moral philosophers and psychologists have missed something crucial in the work of Lawrence Kohlberg (1927–87), best known for his theory of stages of moral development. In Following Kohlberg: Liberalism and the Practice of Democratic Community, Donald R.C. Reed clearly illustrates how the Kohlbergian project has much to offer the crucial debate about moral psychology and how to revivify our society's jaded sense of fairness and responsibility. Psychologists, philosophers, theologians, educators, and therapists will find here a comprehensive guide to Kohlberg's life work, a clear presentation of both theory and practice, and an understanding of moral maturity which encompasses both justice and responsiveness. All who care about nurturing and preserving a democratic community are well-advised to read this book.

About the Author:

Donald R.C. Reed is emeritus professor of philosophy at Wittenberg University, Springfield, Ohio. As a fellow of the National Endowment for the Humanities (1996–97), Reed conducted archival research for a biography of Kohlberg.

Review:

"Kohlberg's critics have maintained that his theory of moral development rests on the existence of moral stages. The critics (including myself) argue that stages don't exist and thus that Kohlberg's theory is false. Donald R.C. Reed's fine book will put a stop to this sort of dismissive argument. Reed provides a careful reading of Kohlberg's corpus and shows how his concerns with justice, fairness, democratic community, and moral education can be appreciated independently of the status of moral stage theory. A fine and careful study."
—Owen Flanagan, James B. Duke Professor of Philosophy, Duke University

“In this penetrating and insightful discussion of Kohlberg’s life and research, Donald R.C. Reed locates a fundamental tension between Kohlberg’s structural stage model, based on a philosophy of liberal individualism, and the Just Community approach, based on a communitarian ethic. [T]his book provides one of the most thoughtful and comprehensive treatment of Kohlberg and his work that I have ever read.” —F. Clark Power, Program of Liberal Studies, University of Notre Dame

“Reed’s most original contribution resides in his articulation of distinct conceptions of liberal and democratic thinking.” —Philosophy in Review
