This course explores how and why we make moral judgments about people and their behavior. We make moral judgments all the time—we might condemn a criminal’s behavior, view an institution’s policies as immoral, or blame a friend for how they’ve treated us. This class investigates the psychological processes that underlie our moral judgments. When do we blame other people, and why? Are our moral judgments driven by emotion or by reasoning? What goes on at the neuronal or brain level when we engage in moral judgment? We examine such questions in this class, first gaining a broad understanding of moral psychological processes, and then applying this understanding to specific topics like moral foundations, cultural disagreement, character traits, and criminal justice.
