Stage 4: 14 CENTURY BCE Organized Religion


Moses: The Teacher. Organizes religion and establishes divine law. 

At the macro level

Dogmas are established and God is now used as the guiding authority for all decision making. In the name of God, his representatives on earth – the clergy will confirm and validate the choices each person must make. The gaze of others is very important.

At the micro level

An awareness of authority drives the behavior of the 10-12 year-old child through rewards and punishments. This wisdom is not yet truly internalized.
