In the last decade there has been a remarkable resurgence of interest in study-
ing moral rationality within the broad context of personality, selfhood, and
identity. Although a concernwith themoral selfwas never entirely absent from
the cognitive developmental approach to moral reasoning (e.g., Blasi, 1983,
1984), it is fair to say that sustained preoccupation with the ontogenesis of jus-
tice reasoning did not leave much room for reflection on how moral cognition
intersects with personological processes. There were both paradigmatic and
strategic reasons for this.
