Morality across cultures: A values perspective

Noga Sverdlik, Sonia Roccas, Lilach Sagiv

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we integrate insights derived from research on values and research on morality to better understand the motivational underpinnings of individual and cultural differences in moral outlook. We discuss the commonalities and differences between values and moral principles. We then apply the values perspective to organize different models of morality. We review past research on cross-cultural differences in morality and show how values contribute to an understanding of these differences. Finally, we outline future directions for research integrating values and morality. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
