Kohlberg’s Stage 4 ½ Revisited – Or: From Halves to Wholes in the Theory of Moral Stages


In their scoring manual Colby and Kohlberg allow for so-called transitional stages between all “true” stages of moral development, i.e. certain responses to their dilemma questions appear to be above one Kohlberg-type of moral reasoning but as yet below the next one in the sequence (1987b; see also 1987a, pp. 100–101).
