Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the scholar, this book is a good collection of essays on contemporary topics in moral psychology. (Just check the Table of Contents to see if your desired topic is in here.) Moreover, it's written by authorities in their respective areas. The articles are comprehensive surveys, and what they do not explicitly address themselves, they give ample resources to pursue. This makes the book good for exploring unfamiliar topics in moral psychology, or for use in a class on the topic.

For the serious student, this book can serve as a dense introduction or as a prelude to serious research. The surveys in each article will give you a tour through contemporary debates surrounding an aspect of moral psychology. Also, the notes and sources will be invaluable, as they will guide your research, should you choose to hone in on a specific topic.

The greatest downside to this book is that the articles are written at a high level. Then again, if you're a professional academic, or if you just like the topic, this is also one of its greatest strengths. I would recommend this book to anyone with a serious interest in moral psychology.

A little cerebral unless you are into moral psychology as an scholarly endeavor. But the writers are clear in their views expressed usually in counterpoint to an objecting view (good philosophical method) so if your willing to concentrate you will get a lot out of it.

This is a fantastic volume that brings together the leaders in the field of moral psychology, a field of psychology that strives to understand why we have the values we have and how we act upon them. This book presents most of the current areas of research giving the reader a thorough survey of the field.
One critical issue explored is how moral judgment is an integration of thinking and feeling, intuition and cognition. Also explored is how psychobiology contributes to moral development because of the evolutionary adaptiveness of normative cognition. Essentially the tendency to make value judgments is an aspect of our nature, but the content of those values are determined and stabilized by our cultural norms.
There are also chapters that address the nature of moral emotions, moral reasoning, and moral character.
The field of moral psychology is an essential component of positive psychology’s developing understanding about the nature of human well-being. Our well-being is shaped by our life satisfaction, and that satisfaction is set by our values. Understand the origin and plasticity of our values are foundational to any psychological understanding of living life well.
