Synopsis

Morality and prejudice are complex social-cognitive attitudes and behaviours. Research is needed to effectively investigate the nature of this empirical relationship. For example, is there a negative relationship between these variables or can individuals be both high on morality and high in prejudice, and if so, why? What role does the notion of egalitarianism play in clarifying the nature of this relationship?
