Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Rest was a professor with the Department of Educational Psychology for the University of Minnesota. In 1982 he helped formally establish the Center for the Study of Ethical Development along with colleagues Muriel Bebeau, Darcia Narvaez and Steve Thoma. Some of his contributions to his field have been that of formulating the theory and methodology of the Defining Issues Test, a component model of moral development. This model built off postconventional theories of Lawrence Kohlberg and his stages of moral development, an approach he called 'Neo-Kohlbergian. James Rest maintained that four key psychological components must be developed for a person to be morally mature and correct. These were moral sensitivity, moral judgement, moral motivation, and moral character. These would allow the person to be able to recognize the issues at hand, make correct and intelligent judgements, have the motivation to take action and the character to maintain good morality throughout the person's life.show more
