  • 4. Comment: • This is shown as a hierarchy, but progression tends to be piecemeal – values are developed according to experiences and situations. • There are many other hierarchical models, e.g., Kölberg, Piaget. • Individual, societal and family experiences will be key drivers forming ethical behaviours, but situation frequently dictates actual behaviours. • The true test of authenticity is that situation does not change ethics. • For further discussion and/or additional slides: ian@lifecollege.org Ian F.
