Summary "In this updated second edition, David Moshman develops his conceptualization of advanced psychological development in adolescence and proposes, in a new chapter, a conception of rational moral identity as a developmental ideal. Unlike the prototypical changes of early childhood, advanced psychological development cannot be understood as progress through universal stages to a universally achieved state of maturity. Progress is possible, however, through rational processes of reflection, coordination, and social interaction. Highlighting the role of liberty in development, the book concludes with a chapter addressing the importance of intellectual freedom in secondary education."--BOOK JACKET.
