Power, Economic Inequality, and Moral Psychology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper demonstrates how cultural psychology incorporates power into its theorizing and explanatory capabilities. It begins by outlining a unified model of moral psychology based on Shweder’s “Big Three” Ethics, Moral Foundations Theory, and Cultural Theory. It then examines three types of power—relational, discursive, performative—which can be incorporated into cultural psychological work to offer a more nuanced analysis of social phenomena.
