Explaining moral behavior:A minimal moral model
MetadataShow full item record
n this review we make a simple theoretical argument which is that for theory development, computational modelling, and general frameworks for understanding moral psychology researchers should build on domain general principles from reasoning, judgment and decision-making research. Our approach is radical with respect to typical models that exist in moral psychology that tend to propose complex innate moral grammars and even evolutionarily guided moral principles. In support of our argument we show that by using a simple value-based decision-model we can capture a range of core moral behaviors. Crucially, the argument we propose is that moral situations per se do not require anything specialized or different from other situations in which we have to make decisions, inferences, and judgments in order to figure out how to act.
