    Intelligent and interesting

    Gilligan's book proposes a theory that women have a fundamentally different psychology: that they experience different stages in their development of ethics and they ultimately differ in the type of ethical system which is developed. Her theory is essentially that women develop ethical systems and ethical decision making which is more community based, which takes into account all sides of the conflict, and which rejects a 'win-lose' viewpoint in order to find a 'win-win' solution for all persons involved. The book is elegantly written, and Gilligan's points, data and examples are fascinating. Even if you don't agree with her, the book provides a lot of interesting food for thought. The next question is, of course, how does a psychological system which was designed for men help women recover?

    balanced, challenging, insightful

    gilligan cogently challenges the concept of an absolute morality, which often excludes the views of women and fails to address their reality. she proposes a distinction between 'female' and 'male' moralities, and identifies the complementarity of the two. she avoids polarizing the different views into 'right' and 'wrong' or 'better' and 'worse,' and addresses both positions with a fairness and balance that is striking. her ideas are strong and clearly deviate from those of her mentor lawrence kohlberg; however, she builds consensus instead of conflict. in writing this book, she displays the very ideal she is trying to describe. her work has dramatically changed my understanding of myself and my female patients.

    What voice?

    In order to really enjoy reading Carol Gilligan¿s novel In a Different Voice, you must do a couple of things. First you should be knowledgeable of the accepted moral development theories. Secondly you should be interested in the field of moral development. The threading of opinion and previous research is difficult to follow, and at times Gilligan¿s voice is hard to decipher. Furthermore, it is important to note that the examples used by Gilligan to confirm her own moral ladder seem to fit her needs a bit too closely. I could make up my own moral development ladder if I asked the right questions to the right people. While it is true that the voice of women in the making of the generally accepted theory by Kohlberg is lacking, Gilligan¿s research is not clear-cut enough for me to establish a new ladder for only women. Gilligan¿s research is founded on the fact that Kohlberg used only white men for his studies, but in Gilligan¿s significant studies she uses only females. I cannot accept either ladder as a general ladder to apply to all, but I do agree with the fact that men and women think differently and reach different moral steps and different times. At least by reading Gilligan¿s work I woke up to the fact that Kolhberg¿s moral ladder is heavily biased.
