W8: Moral Development and Intensity Factors

This week’s content discussed the stages of moral development as well as a variety of moral intensity factors. Consider and comment on the following questions:

  1. Identify one well-known person today (politician, celebrity, etc.) who appears to be a pre-conventionalmoral reasoner, and describe how they demonstrate this? Do the same thing for one person who appears to be a principled moral reasoner.
  2. Reflect on the choices made by Wells Fargo in its 2016 consumer deception scandal, and describe what an intensity analysis might have looked like for those choices, in terms of the six intensity factors discussed in your content (e.g. for “consensus”, briefly discuss how widely agreed it was that the actions taken by the banks were wrong, then do the same assessment for “probability of harm”, “imminence of harm”, etc.).
