Childrens' and adults' reasoning about property right violations in moral dilemmas

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In property law, ownership of property confers the “right of exclusion”: non-owners are excluded from using an object unless they have the owners’ permission. However, the law of necessity states that it is permissible to use others’ property without permission when this is urgently necessary to prevent harm. In two experiments we investigate age-related differences in people’s appreciation of the law of necessity in the context of property disputes. While adults and 4- to 5-year-olds set aside owners’ rights in emergencies, 3-year-olds do not and instead uphold owner’s rights even when doing so enables harm to occur.
