A sociological critique of cognitivism and developmentalism, this study begins with a critical examination of Kant's subjective turn and follows the course it has taken through Piaget's genetic structuralism, Kohlberg's justice reasoning, and Habermas' communicative ethics. The theoretical perspective adopted for this critique is a sociology of knowledge as contained in the works of Karl Marx, Karl Mannheim, and Georg Lukacs.
