Abstract

This volume, that brings together the papers presented at the annual Sydney Symposium of Social Psychology, cannot but be enjoyed by the growing community of social psychologists interested in the field of morality. This is only the second book on morality that has the expression “social psychology” in its title after the Social Psychology of Morality: Exploring the Causes of Good and Evil (2012), edited by Mikulincer and Shaver. Forgas, Jussim and Van Lange (2016, p. 1) belief is that „Homo moralis is no less an appropriate term to describe humans as is Homo spaiens” and that social psychology has the privilege to unravel and understand human morality.
