This follow-up to The Moral Domain carries forward the exploration of new ways ofmodeling moral behavior. Whereas the first volume emphasized the work of Lawrence Kohlberg and thetradition of cognitive development, The Moral Self presents a paradigm that also incorporatesnoncognitive structures of selfhood. The concerns of the sixteen essays include the diversity ofmoral outlooks, the dynamics of creating a moral self, cognitive and noncognitive prerequisites ofthe psychological-development of autonomy and moral competence, and motivation and moralpersonality. Gil G. Noam is Director of the Hall-Mercer Laboratory of Developmental Psychology andDevelopmental Psychopathology at Harvard Medical School. Thomas Wren is Professor of Philosophy atLoyola University of Chicago.Contributors: Part I. Conceptual Foundations. Harry Frankfurt. AmélieOksenberg Rorty. Ernst Tugendhat. Ernest S. Wolf.
