heteronomous Badness and Fairness Badness judged in terms of the objective form/sequence of the action. Fairness = adult's decisions. Arbitrary/Severe punishment seen as fair.
Heteronomous Punishment and Justice Punishment is an automatic consequence of the offense; justice is inherent.
Autonomous Morality Stage Moral reasoning based on cooperation and mutual respect.
Autonomous Rational Moral Attitudes Rules are products of mutual agreement, open to negotiation, and made legitimate by personal acceptance/common consent. Right = acting in cooperation and mutual respect.
Autonomous Badness and Fairness Badness is viewed in terms of the person's intentions; fairness is equal treatment and taking into account individual needs.
