6 Stages of Moral Reasoning

6 of 6

6. Postconventional Morality: Universal Ethical Principle

This is an ideal, hypothetical stage that is reached by few people. A person who is at this stage looks to his inner conscience rather than established rules and disregards laws that violate his own ethical principles. He promotes universal principles that surpass norms and laws: equality for all people, respect for human dignity and commitment to social justice.
