Abstract

QUEIROZ, Sávio Silveira de; RONCHI, Juliana Peterle  and  TOKUMARU, Rosana Suemi. Rules constitution and the moral development in the theory of piaget: a Kantian keflection. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.1, pp. 69-75. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722009000100010.

The games of rules have complex systems of rules expressed in socio-cultural relations favoring, according to Piaget, the study of autonomy versus heteronomy - a dimension of the moral development. Our aim was to analyze the importance of the rules' constitution for Piaget, examining his appropriations of Kantian terms, providing a reflection on terms that have been differently used from their original philosophical meanings. We observed that the differentiation between the two moral systems and the conception of respect are Kantian presuppositions used by Piaget. We concluded that the understanding of the moral development in the Piagetian theory became evident when terms in the Kantian writings are specified.

Keywords : Piaget; Kant; moral development; games-of-rules.
