My Educational Philosophy Quotations by Topic. The human world is far more transparent to us than is commonly assumed. How do we come not to know our experience, our feelings, and the feelings of others? How do we become divided from others and from ourselves? The nakedness of standing without a frame, in a new paradigm, carries the pleasures of freedom but it also can evoke fears of looking foolish and exposed, feelings of shame that can readily erupt into rage and attack. The mystery of love will never be unraveled.

Carol Gilligan , has proposed fundamental gender differences. Women typically conceptualize interpersonal dilemmas in terms of people and their relationships, whereas men often orient to dilemmas as practical problems. Although considerable research has explored these gender differences, they have usually been treated as psychological traits or abstract moral orientations.

In a Different Voice: Psychological Theory and Women's Development is a book on gender studies by American professor Carol Gilligan , published in , which Harvard University Press calls "the little book that started a revolution". In the book, Gilligan criticized Kohlberg's stages of moral development of children. Kohlberg's data showed that girls on average reached a lower level of moral development than boys did. Kohlberg's theory based on his dissertation had been developed on a sample of boys as he had been advised to do. Gilligan stated that the scoring method Kohlberg used tended to favor a principled way of reasoning one more common to boys over a moral argumentation concentrating on relations, which would be more amenable to girls. Unlike the work which led her to her own studies, Gilligan's In a Different Voice purports to take account of both men and women. She strives to emphasize that women, like men, are capable of thinking and acting in a manner associated with justice, and women with elements more associated with the value of care.
Access options available:. At the time of publication, , human development was viewed through men's development and she challenged this norm. Though Jane Loevinger included women in her ego development research, she did not critique previous research for privileging men. In this book, Gilligan used three studies to examine how people develop relationships and reflect on their lives and connections to consider how they see the world and develop their senses of self. Through the synthesis of these three studies, she created a critical analysis about existing developmental theories, with a major focus on Lawrence Kolberg's theory of moral development. She critiqued and responded to how women were seen through male-dominated ways of thinking. To review how this foundational book influences the field of student affairs and higher education, we begin with our perceptions of Gilligan's goals, the concepts and ideas that contributed to the advancement of student development theory, and how it influenced other theories, and we end with a view of how this enduring contribution holds up in contemporary settings.
As more women in the s and s attained judicial positions on federal and state courts, some social scientists and feminist scholars began to question if female judicial officers would adjudicate differently than their male counterparts Kenney This potential difference spurs a series of important research questions whose answers provide valuable insight into judicial decision-making. For example, would gender diversity on the bench lead to differences in case outcomes, legal reasoning, and the judicial decision-making process? Drawing on the work of Carol Gilligan , would women judges rule in a different voice than their male counterparts? Would women judges employ an ethics of care, prioritizing social relationships and context?
Harvard Educational Review 1 December ; 47 4 : — As theories of developmental psychology continue to define educational goals and practice, it has become imperative for educators and researchers to scrutinize not only the underlying assumptions of such theories but also the model of adulthood toward which they point.
