Abstract: The role that morality plays in the decision making process of offenders is often neglected. A growing body of work has demonstrated that morality may be an important factor in both criminal propensity and offender decision-making. The extant literature is limited however, as it typically employs general tautological measures and fails to fully inform the role that morality plays. This study seeks to advance this literature by utilizing a survey with more comprehensive measures of morality. Additionally, this study employs an experimental design using hypothetical vignettes intended to assess the extent to which the situation or setting may prime moral awareness and promote conformity.

Abstract: Are people more politically active if they believe most others support or oppose their moral views? Perceived moral minority status could decrease action by making people more likely to expect social disapproval for their actions and less likely to expect political success. However, moral minority status could also be associated with greater perceived need to act and higher levels of identification with others who share the same views, potentially increasing political action. This article uses data from the 2006 European Social Survey (round 3) to examine the relationship between perceived moral support or opposition and actual political action in a large, cross-sectional sample from across 23 countries. Using logistic regression with country-level fixed effects, I find evidence for the “active minority” hypothesis: moral opposition from “most others” is associated with higher levels of political action than moral support (or indifference), and this effect is not reducible to increased political extremity or political interest.

Abstract: The present study examines narrative exposure, identification and moral judgment as indicators of the degree to which individuals may morally disengage during mediated entertainment experiences. Additionally, this study attempts to further expand disposition theory and theorizing on the role of moral disengagement by moving beyond conceptualizations of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters to explore more subtle moral distinctions between characters as they exist within the same narrative. Using Harry Potter as the context, this research investigates moral evaluations as they exist along a continuum. Results suggest that identification and moral judgment serve as important mediators predicting moral disengagement, however these relationships are moderated by the perception of the character’s moral fortitude.

Abstract: The present study tested the idea that certain moral foundations are influenced by elementary empathic processes of facial emotion recognition, and that moral foundations in turn affect the extent to which individuals will engage in moral communication behavior – i.e. deception. Two hundred and forty seven undergraduate students completed the Moral Foundations Questionnaire (MFQ; Graham et al., 2011) and a facial emotion recognition task (PERT ER-40; Gur et al., 2002), in addition to indicating the number of lies told in a 24-hour period. Results indicate that the moral foundation of harm/care is associated with both sensitivity to anger and fear facial expressions as well as the tendency to tell fewer lies. Additionally, individuals who reported telling fewer lies also showed greater accuracy in recognizing facial expressions of anger. Results are discussed in terms of the role of primary emotion recognition processes in shaping moral foundations and the learning of moral behavior.

Abstract: The issue of how people develop moral knowledge and moral judgment is of theoretical and empirical importance in psychological literature. The cognitive-developmental approach is still the predominant today. However, a full account of morality may start from Kohlberg’s individual moral development, but it must recognize that intra-individual variations may reflect different individual ways of thinking about the social world. In this research, the individual conception of community and the boundaries within which people apply their sense of justice is considered as an evidence of the intra-individual variations on moral reasoning. The short-form of the Defining Issue Test was administered to 360 Italian participants. The classical dilemmas were changed by varying the identity of the protagonist of each dilemma. So each participant responded to three dilemmas, one about an Italian (ingroup), one about an American (considered as belonging to a morally-included community), and lastly one about a Rumanian person (considered as belonging to a morally-excluded community). The results effectively show that people’s moral reasoning is different according to the people being judged. If the person submitted to judgment belonged to a morally-excluded community, participants used an harsher morality, whereas if the person belonged to a morally-included community, participants tended to be more lenient and indulgent.
