Morality In Adulthood
Morality is a hard subject to talk about because there are so many different views on the subject. There are many subjects that one group of people might find moral while others might find it immoral. Morality in adulthood has not been a subject that has a lot of research. most researcher concentrate on the moral development in children. Moral development in adulthood is an important topic. As a persons morals mature we should look at why we should be moral and how being moral effects our decisions.
Research on morality in adults is limited (Pratt et all., 1996). The research that has ben done suggest that little changes occur in adult from mid-life to age 75 (Pratt,Pratt, Diessner, Hunsberger, and Pancer, 1996). In one study with two groups one with an average age of 34 and the another group with an average age of 73 the researcher found little difference in the moral judgments in different situations (Pratt et all., 1996). although they dd notice that the younger group would tend look at the situations in a role taking method more than the older group (Pratt et all., 1996).
