Abstract

In Part I Donna Habenicht, a developmental psychologist from Andrews University, interviewed Fritz Oser, a former student of Lawrence Kolhberg, who has conducted cross-cultural-national research on the development of religious judgment. In the interview, Oser defined religious judgment as a basic psychological structure that transcends any particular ideology. Higher stages of religious judgment are associated with cross-generation dialogue, reflection, and openness. Acquisition of religious knowledge and participation in meaningful religious traditions appear to contribute to the basic religious structure of the developing intellect. © 1997, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
