    Lawrence Kohlberg (October 25, 1927 – January 19, 1987) was an American psychologist born in Bronxville, New York, who served as a professor at the University of Chicago, as well as Harvard University. Having specialized in research on moral education and reasoning, he is best known for his theory of stages of moral development
  7. Stages 1. Obedience and Punishment (How can I avoid punishment?)2. Self-Interest (What's in it for me? You do for me, I’ll do for you. You do that to me, I’ll do that to you)3. Interpersonal Accord and Conformity (Conforming to the will of the group. Peer Pressure)4. Authority and social-order maintaining orientation (Law and order morality. You do something or don’t do something because the law/rule/religious text says so)5. Social Contract (Laws are regarded as social contracts rather than rigid dictums/rules)6. Universal Ethical Principles/The Golden Rule (Principled conscience/commitment to justice, equality and respect…think Jesus, Dr. King, Ghandi)
