This edited work presents a unique and authoritative look at morality - its development within the individual, its evolution within society, and its place within the law. The contributors represent some of the foremost authorities in these fields, and the book represents a collection of essays presented at a symposium on social constructivism and morality.


AUDIENCE: Undergraduate and graduate students in psychology, philosophy, and the social sciences, and students/researchers in sociology, socio-linguistics, and literature (including post-modernism and narratology).
