Abstract:

My paper on moral development has been criticized on three main counts: firstly, that I have confused romantic and progressive ideology; secondly, that I have failed to appreciate the teleological character of (cognitive) developmental theory; thirdly, that I have failed to show that normativity of developmental theory goes, as it were, 'all the way down'. In this reply, I maintain that the first two charges are based on distortion and misrepresentation of my argument, and--in relation to the third charge--that my critics have simply failed to offer any discernible counter-argument to my case that it is misguided to seek empirical theoretical grounding for developmental theories of the kind in question.
