Internalism in moral psychology is the view that belief in a moral or practical claim must also motivate one to act on that claim. Important scientific evidence shows that a simple version of internalism must be false. However, the view of rationality and emotion developed in Ch. 7 provides a framework in which a robust version of internalism may be true of some practical and ethical judgments as a result of their emotional component. Also, attempts to do a priori moral psychology, or otherwise reject empirical psychological findings, is criticized.

Keywords:   ethical judgment, internalism, moral psychology, moral reason, practical judgment, practical reason, rationality
