Worldviews are composed 26 Willis F. 1 Nested concepts of a scientific paradigm. , issues pertaining to fundamental categories of reality). , Is stasis or change, substance or process, asserted as the fundamental vision of the world? ). Nested within worldviews are metatheories of a middle range. These concepts are less abstract, are less broad, and entail principles that are identifiably more specific to the observational domains of interest. For example, nested within one particular worldview, a midrange metatheory conceptualizes the human organism as an active agent or as a dynamic system, whereas nested within another worldview, a midrange metatheory conceptualizes the organism as an input–output device.

Lerner and Janette B. They point to several recent proposals that have argued that aspects of morality are unlearned and innate; they review and critique these claims. In contrast to these nativist assumptions about the role of biology in morality, they present an alternative approach based on a relational developmental systems view of moral development. The role for biology in this approach is in setting up the conditions—the developmental system—in which forms of interaction and later forms of thinking emerge.
