Abstract

Through analysis of 478 high school students reactions to 14 questionnaire items dealing with various crimes, an attempt was made to isolate some of the factors underlying the moral judgment of the Israeli adolescent. The items were ranked in terms of percentage of criticism in the group, thus providing an order of criticism which served as the dependent variable for our analysis. As expected the intentions of the criminal supplied a major part of the explanation of the order obtained. In addition five other factors seemed to be relevant: 1) Was the criminal the only one to profit from the crime? 2) If not, were the others who profited close to him? 3) Was the victim close to the criminal? 4) Was the crime committed while the criminal was acting in an official role or privately? 5) The probability that an Israeli youth could be involved in such a crime. Further research was suggested which would supplement the general lines provided by Piaget's theory of moral judgment.
