Intellectual development and moral statements in younger schoolchildren

Results of an experimental study are presented where children of the junior school age were given original and modified versions of some of J. Piaget's moral "stories" with the view to reveal the scope of their interests and to establish their ability to deal with them at the level of internal operations. Qualitative analysis of the records makes in possible to conclude that at this age the process of organization of moral statements is influenced by the capacity for operating in the internal plane, by the social and family context of the "stories", and by some personality features connected with the availability of moral norms.
