Force dynamics as a basis for moral intuitions (PSYNDEXshort)

In: Force dynamics as a basis for moral intuitions (PSYNDEXshort). Cognitive Science Society, Austin, chap. Force dynamics as a basis for moral intuitions (PSYNDEXshort), pp. 785-790. (ISBN: 978-0-97-683188-4).

People seamlessly generate moral intuitions about a wide range of events they observe, but to date the cognitive processes underlying this competency are poorly understood. We propose that our moral intuitions are grounded in force-dynamic intuitions. We show how the evaluation of entities engaged in schematized interactions can be predicted from specific force-dynamic properties of those interactions, and we point out how these evaluative tendencies relate to our moral norm of not interfering with others' interests.
