Alternatives and defaults: Knobe's two explanations of how moral judgments influence intuitions about intentionality and causation

Journal Article (Journal)

Knobe cites both relevant alternatives and defaults on a continuum to explain how moral judgments influence intuitions about certain apparently non-moral notions. I ask (1) how these two accounts are related, (2) whether they exclude or supplement supposedly competing theories, and (3) how to get positive evidence that people consider relevant alternatives when applying such notions. © 2010 Cambridge University Press.
