The Psychology of Moral Outrage: Incurvatus in se

Social Sciences

What motivates moral outrage? — Expressing outrage could reflect an underlying concern with justice. Research shows bystanders’ level of moral outrage can predict their willingness to pursue justice for a victimized group.  From this perspective, outrage is driven by differing conceptions of what is just. From our perspective, such public displays of outrage make more sense if they are viewed as a means of communicating information about oneself.
