background image Psychology of Morality (Cont’d)  Psychopathy Primarily An Emotional Deficit  Reduced skin conductance response (SCR)  to distress and fear in other  Impaired startle response to threatening and distressing images   Abnormal conditional fear response   Behaviorally uninhibited temperament   Reduced amygdala volume  THEY DON'T LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES  Don't have a form of long term planning that would give rise to awareness 
of consequences 
Hard to get them to have morality once the lack of the emphatic response 
is present 
Reason and Emotion in “Normal” Moral Judgement  The trolley problem: Thought experiment in ethics: 5 people v 1 person 
kill 
Responses to EThical Dilemmas Often Driven by Emotional REactions, but not 
reasoned calculation 
Moral intuitions in cases of personal harm are driven by emotional 
reactions 
This leads to many less than ideal moral judgement  The Identifiable Victim Effect  People will give more money for one person suffering rather than a group 
of people suffering  
Gives people a reason that they can make a change   Paul Bloom, Against Empathy, that empathy is actually not a good thing 
because it leads our judgment astray 
The Capacity for Morality  Moral judgement and behavior seems to be driven by basic intuitions and 
emotional responses 
People who lack these basic intuitions/ emotional responses seem to have 
very different moral judgements/ actions 
To fully account for the capacity of morality  ● Ability to reason  
● The power of situations  
● The role of culture
