Disgust and the Moralization of Purity
Emotion feeds into intuition (fast judges of right and wrong) that figure prominently in moral judgments
Moralization: distinct emotions can amplify the importance of different moral domains during moral
judgments
Disgust relates to amplified moral judgments of purity violations
Moral judgments can pertain to domains other than harm and justice
Moral domains involve discrete sets of rules that impart a specific idea of what is good and virtuous, how
people should behave, and what deserves punishment
Moral domains also relate to moral judgment. Actions are morally wrong if they breach the rules of a moral
domain but right if they uphold the rules.
3 moral domains: autonomy, divinity, and community
5: harm/care, fairness/reciprocity, ingroup/loyalty, authority/respect, purity/sanctity
Domains are basic, innate elements of moral judgment in all cultures but played up or down in different
cultures
Domain of justice : People should respect each other’s individual rights and liberties, reciprocate aid, and
treat others fairly
Harm/care: people should not harm others and should help others
Domain of purity: Protecting sanctity of body and soul. Relate to evolutionary concern of avoiding
consumption of bacteria, toxins, and parasites. People should be should be clean, chaste, self-restrained and
spiritually pure.
Purity has some significance but not as much as justice and harm/care among adults in the U.S
Core disgust is revulsion elicited by noxious objects (unpleasant sensory experience)
Animal nature disgust: activities that remind people of their animal origins like sex and eating
Interpersonal disgust: elicited by contact with strangers, evildoers, diseased people
Sociomoral disgust: against people who commit vulgar violations against each other, such as child abuse or
incest
Disgust signals the badness of impurity and the goodness of purity
Appraisal-tendency framework says that each emotion influences judgment in domains that are
thematically related to the eliciting appraisal
Disgust should not relate to the moralization of judgments linked to other moral domains
Other negative emotions should not moralize judgments of purity
