Unequal Foundations Inequality, Morality, and Emotions across Cultures by Steve

By Steven Hitlin, Sarah K. Unequal Foundations offers readers a novel theory and an original use of cross-cultural data to assert that the level of economic inequality in a society is reflected in the emotional experience of its members. Unequal Foundations offers readers a novel theory and a unique use of cross-cultural data to assert that the level of economic inequality in a society is reflected in the emotional experience of its members. People living in societies with more equality (countries such as Japan, Germany, and Canada) generally experience more positive, binding emotions on a regular basis.

On the other hand, those living in unequal societies (the United States and China, for example) are significantly more likely to regularly experience negative, sanctioning moral emotions. In this book, authors Steven Hitlin and Sarah K. As such, the authors delve deeper than previous literature by presenting data that supports their general approach using a method designed for cross-cultural comparative research. Steven Hitlin is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Iowa.

He has published numerous articles in sociological and psychological journals about morality, the self, agency, and racial identification. He is the author of Moral Selves, Evil Selves, the Social Psychology of Conscience (2008, Palgrave Macmillan) and, along with Stephen Vaisey, is the lead editor of the Handbook of The Sociology of Morality (2010, Springer). Harkness is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Iowa. Her work centers on the social psychology of inequality and has published articles in the areas of emotions, morality, status, and affect control theory. Chapter 1 Introduction Chapter 2 A Primer on Inequality Chapter 3 The Social Scientific Study of Morality Chapter 4 The Difficulty of Studying Morality Across Cultures Chapter 5 Morality as a Measure of Society Chapter 6 The Theory of Inequality and Moral Emotions Chapter 7 Affect Control Theory: How Do Cultures Draw Moral Lines?

Chapter 8 Methodology and a Description of the Data Chapter 9 Empirical Analysis Chapter 10 Conclusion. Unequal Foundations is a provocative book that suggests that income inequality induces harsher moral judgments and neg-ative moral emotions and plays a more critical role in moral judgments and emotion than the cultural syndrome of individualism collectivism. " -- Shigehiro Oishi, American Journal of Sociology "Social psychologists Hitlin and Harkness believe that moral emotions are embedded in the language of different societies. They believe that'in societies that have greater economic inequality, the sanctioning-based moral emotions of anger, contempt, disgust, shame will be more frequent and severe. To test this, they compare the US, Canada, Germany, Japan, and China...

They found that the US and China, the two most unequal societies in this set, were similar, and the other three, which are more equal, grouped together. How one evaluates this very interesting finding will depend on how one views their method. The authors wanted to study the moral emotions embedded in ordinary language, but knew that the equivalent word in different languages often carries a different moral weight. To account for this, they used preexisting dictionaries from each of these countries, in which students had given quantitative values on several different dimensions to various words...
