On how moral can shape perception

Ana P. Gantman, Jay J. Van Bavel,Moral Perception, Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Volume 19, Issue 11, November 2015, Pages 631-633, ISSN 1364-6613, DOI: 10.1016/j.tics.2015.08.004.

Based on emerging research, we propose that human perception is preferentially attuned to moral content. We describe how moral concerns enhance detection of morally relevant stimuli, and both command and direct attention. These perceptual processes, in turn, have important consequences for moral judgment and behavior.
