The main purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationships between moral reasoning and epistemological beliefs in the context of educational research. The sample consisted of 96 elementary student teachers in Turkey. The findings of this study demonstrated that epistemological beliefs did not make a unique contribution to moral reasoning. The results also showed that while student teachers develop more sophisticated beliefs in some epistemological dimensions, they develop less sophisticated beliefs in other epistemological dimensions.
