Steve Guglielmo’s research explores the psychological processes of moral judgment, specifically examining how moral judgments are guided by mental state judgments, and how negative moral judgments such as blame may differ from positive ones such as praise. His research explores core questions of social and moral cognition: how do people interpret negative and positive behavior, how do they make inferences about others’ mental states, and how do these various assessments shape judgments of right and wrong? The Morality and Social Cognition lab investigates the social and cognitive processes that underlie moral judgment. Our work explores how people make inferences about others’ minds, how these inferences shape moral judgments, and how negative moral judgments like blame may differ from positive ones like praise.
