Psychology 2 Page Paper: Moral Development Assignment

Read the version of the Kohlberg example listed below and respond to the dilemma in writing.

“In Europe, a lady was dying because she was very sick.  There was one drug that the doctors said might save her.  This medicine was discovered by a man living in the same town.  It cost him $200 to make it, but he charged $2,000 for just a little of it.  The sick lady’s husband, Heinz, tried to borrow enough money to buy the drug.  He went to everyone he knew to borrow the money.  He told the man who made the drug that his wife was dying and asked him to sell the medicine cheaper or let him pay later.  But the man said, “No, I made the drug and I’m going to make money from it.”  So Heinz broke into the store and stole the drug.”

1. Did Heinz do the right thing? Write at least four complete sentences in response.

2. Now evaluate your response and place your response on both Kohlberg’s and Giligan’s levels of morality (the scales are below these questions for your review). Tell me which level of morality you would fall under for Kohlberg’s levels and for Giligan’s levels, and discuss why you feel you would fall under those levels (min. 2 sentences for each).

  • You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
