Rights and wrongs : how children and young adults evaluate the world
Focusing on the way children and young adults understand and form judgements of right and wrong, this book examines the ways these judgements are independent yet coordinated. It also discusses children's distinction between what is held to be true and morally right as well as how they make judgements about moral worthiness and moral obligation.
