Moral judgment as information processing: an integrative review
Frontiers in Psychology (2015)
  • Steve Guglielmo
Abstract
"This article reviews dominant models of moral judgment, organizing them within an overarching framework of information processing. This framework poses two distinct questions: (1) What input information guides moral judgments? and (2) What psychological processes generate these judgments? Information Models address the first question, identifying critical information elements (including causality, intentionality, and mental states) that shape moral judgments. "
