40 children-ages 4, 6, 8, and 10-were interviewed by standard and Piagetian clinical method on 2 socio-moral dilemmas. Each child's discussion of the perspectives of different characters in the dilemma was analyzed according to a previously defined sequence of role-taking levels. The high correlation of these levels with increasing age indicates that role taking as a concept is amenable to a structural-developmental analysis.
