‘To date, almost all of the studies that have manipulated disgust or cleanliness have reported effects on moral judgment. These findings strengthen the case for a causal relationship between disgust and moral judgment, by showing that experimentally evoked disgust---or cleanliness, its opposite---can influence moral cognition’
Chapman & Anderson (2013)
conclusion so far
There seems to be a variety of evidence for the claim
that manipulating disgust-related phenomena
can influence unreflective ethical judgements.
Why do people tend to respond differently in Trolley and Transplant?
Why are ethical judgements sometimes, but not always, a consequence of reasoning from known principles?
