Title: Retribution Drives Our Decisions to Punish, but Punishment Is Not the Only Moral Choice
Author: Bell, Chris
Rupp, Deborah E.
Identifier: 00008
Abstract: When people decide to punish others, their choice is driven almost entirely by retribution. However, the decision not to punish, although often interpreted as self-interested or morally disinterested, may in fact be based on powerful moral self-reflection and considerations.
