THE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL ON MORAL JUDGMENTS
We investigate moral decision-making under the influence of alcohol. We use standard sacrificial “trolley” moral dilemmas (the footbridge case and switch case) to replicate past findings of increased pro-sacrificial (i.e. “utilitarian”) responding under the influence of alcohol, and two additional measurement instruments (OUS, CNI) to investigate the potential mechanisms behind the effect. We also aim to distinguish the effects of alcohol from subjective beliefs about being intoxicated using a placebo condition.
