  5. 5. Temporal Distance and Morality: Moral Concerns Loom Larger in the Distant Future

    Author : Jens Agerström; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; moral concerns; morality; moral judgment; Construal Level Theory; temporal distance; moral reasoning;

    Abstract : The aim of this dissertation was to examine whether the temporal distance of moral events affects the moral judgments and decisions people make in response to those events. Drawing upon Construal Level Theory (CLT; Trope & Liberman, 2003) which posits that the distant future is represented at a higher, more abstract level of mental construal than the near future, and that high-level mental construals shift attention to core values and higher-order principles, the main proposition of this dissertation was that people would show greater moral concerns in response to distant future events than near future events.
