In this talk, I will present a broad overview of the consequences of this two-part model of morality in terms of language and moral judgment. Key themes on which I’ll focus include the effects of conditional morality on (1) interpretation of causation in ‘moral’ verb semantics; (2) beliefs about counterfactual possibilities, deservingness, and blameworthiness of victims; and (3) situational excusing for violations of conditional morality by the self and close others. I will also discuss the normative significance of the two-part model of morality and future directions, including interventions on perceived social connections to alter moral modes.
