The Psychology of Difference

The Psychology of Difference

(p.301) Conclusion The Psychology of Difference
Ethics in an Age of Terror and Genocide

Kristen Renwick Monroe

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter presents some thoughts about the implications of this study for the overall understanding of ethics, moral psychology, and other works on prejudice and genocide. It reveals how events in the author's personal life influenced her work and how she was, in turn, changed by it, leading her to view the world differently, and making her aware of limitations in the traditional approaches to the discipline as well as heightening her commitment to interdisciplinary work and methodological pluralism in the search for fresher approaches to studying the normative bases of politics. In returning to these themes, the chapter reviews what has been learned about altruism, moral choice, and the psychology surrounding the ethics of difference.

Keywords:   altruism, moral choice, difference, prejudice, genocide, moral psychology, ethics
