After reviewing literature on moral development, the chapter reports a study of moral knowledge as conceptualized in the moral domain theory (Turiel, 1983), and related to participation in bullying. Participants were children and early-adolescents. Bullies have been found to judge transgressions of moral rules as acceptable at a higher rate than peers, at least under some conditions, such as when the transgression is allowed by context authorities.
