Saturday 8 July
11.10 - 12.50 h.

Across four presentations of research contrasting disgust and related states with anger. we show how disgust has unique, often prejudicial, correspondences with judgment: responding to bad moral character, leading to harsher decisions for defendants and victims, and promoting indirect aggression.
