SALLES, Arleen L.F.. On Disgust in Morality. Diánoia [online]. 2010, vol.55, n.64, pp. 27-45. ISSN 0185-2450.
In this paper I focus on the moral role of disgust. After characterizing this emotion, I identify and critically examine three main objections recently presented to show that disgust is morally problematic. I argue that none warrant rejecting the moral appropriateness of disgust in all instances, for example, as a response to certain kinds of evil. I end by summarizing recent research in moral psychology that links the acceptance of disgust to a conservative view of morality.
