5 Steps

Kohlberg's   came up with decision making stages. One must pass through one stage before going to another and therefore can not return to the previous stage. We develop   in response to cognitive conflicts at the current stage of our moral development.

The first stage is punishment and obedience orientation, in this stage what one does is determined by immediate physical consequences that might ensure the moral value of an action. Therefore the concern is to avoid punishment. On the second stage that is self interest orientation that is we do what is necessary and make concessions superiors but only towards self interest. The rightness to us will be what maximize our interest and reduces our punishment. At this stage our moral agents value people or things that hold interest or   that are useful. The third stage is interpersonal accord and conformity which a moral agents acts not from moral sensibility but to get approval from others as it states ”what is good and right is defines as conformity with the behaviour expectations of ones society or peer group”. Here we judge what is right to us according to what people around us consider right or say good, we reason our judgment based on what the society would think from what they consider right. Stage four is authority and social-order maintaining orientation, morality involves respecting the rules of law and the authority. Moral reasoning in this stage is beyond the need for individual approval because at this stage the failure is considered as criminal injustice which leads to punishment that is to stop other from wrong doing it as if one does then everybody can start doing it so it is therefore to restore order in our society.
