27 Heinz DilemmaAfter listening to Heinz’s story, write down what you think he should have done and WHY
28 The 3 Levels of Moral Development Lawrence KohlbergThe 3 Levels of Moral DevelopmentMoral level is determined by answers people give to hypothetical moral dilemmas
29 Level One – Preconventional morality (self interest up to 10) This level is characterized by the desire to avoid punishment or gain rewardStage 1 – fear punishment for disobedienceStage 2 – fairness/what’s in it for me?
30 Possible answersHeinz shouldn’t steal the drug because he might go to jailHe should steal the drug or his wife will yell at himIt is right for Heinz to steal the drug because it can cure his wife and then she can cook for him.The doctor scientist had spent lots of money and many years of his life to develop the cure so it's not fair to him if Heinz stole the drug.
31 Level 2 – Conventional morality (10 through Adult) This Level is characterized by the Primary concern of fitting in and playing the role of a good citizenPeople have a strong desire to follow the rules and laws.Typical of most adultsStage 3 – based on conformity and loyaltyStage 4 – a “law-and-order” orientation
32 Possible AnswersYes, Heinz should steal the drug. He probably will go to jail for a short time for stealing but everyone will think he is a good husband.As her husband, Heinz has a duty to save his wife's life so he should steal the drug. But it's wrong to steal, so Heinz should be prepared to accept the penalty for breaking the law.
33 Most adults do not reach this level. Level 3 – Postconventional (“principled”) morality (Adolescence- through Adulthood)This level characterized by an appreciation of Universal ethical principles that represent the rights or obligations of all peopleMost adults do not reach this level.Stage 5 – values and laws are relative and change; recognition that people hold differing standardsStage 6 – standard based on universal human rights
34 Possible answersHeinz should steal the drug because everyone has the right to life regardless of the law against stealing. Should Heinz be caught and prosecuted for stealing then the law (against stealing) needs to be reinterpreted because a person's life is at stake.The doctor scientist's decision is despicable but his right to fair compensation (for his discovery) must be maintained. Therefore, Heinz should not steal the drug.Heinz should steal the drug to save his wife because preserving human life is a higher moral obligation than preserving property.
