In order to investigate the relation between the development of justice conceptions and the development of mathematical and physical conceptions, 50 children (10 at each age from 4 through 8) were administered a "positive justice" interview and 5 of Piaget's concrete-operational mathematical and physical tasks. Results indicate that (1) there is a strong association between the level of a child's reasoning about positive justice and the level of his reasoning about mathematical and physical problems; (2) in the great majority of subjects, there was close synchrony (i. e., little segregation) between parallel levels of reasoning in the 2 domains; and (3) there was little evidence in support of the notion that 1 type of reasoning (e. g., mathematical-physical) provides a necessary condition for the development of the other (e. g., justice). An analysis of logical relations between parallel levels in the 2 domains is presented.
