Recently Published Paper: “How to think about emotions and morality: Circles, not arrows”

The lab recently published the paper “How to think about emotions and morality: Circles, not arrows”, with Kurt Gray and Chelsea Schein, in Current Opinion in Psychology.  In the article, the authors use principles of constructionism, in which discrete mental states emerge from the combination of more basic, domain-general processes, to provide a new model of mind for the understanding of moral emotions.
