Gilligans's Stages of Moral Development

Stage

Features

Stage 1 Survival orientation

Stage 2 Conventional care

Stage 3 Integrated care

Egocentric concern for self, lack of awareness of others' needs; "right" action is what promotes emotional or physical survival

Lack of distinction between what others want and what is right; "right" action is whatever pleases others best

Coordination or integration of needs of self and of others; "right" action takes account of self as well as others
