This chapter surveys empirical evidence linking emotions to moral judgments and describes several processing models that are consistent with these data. It then considers the question of which particular emotions are involved in moral judgment, and suggests a way to distinguish moral and non-moral emotions that does not require a cognitive theory of what emotions are. Finally, the chapter discusses two particularly important moral emotions—anger and guilt—describing the conditions under which they arise and their distinctive contributions to moral motivation.

Keywords:   emotions, anger, guilt, motivation, moral judgment
