We have already achieved a lot as humanity – new technologies make our lives incredibly easy – nevertheless, we still pose questions about the morality of people and certain species of animals.

In the case of people, morality is not only a system of values; it is different than religion or ethics. We perceive morality as a combination of our views, emotions, and actions. Morality is what we do, think, and feel.

Dr. Paruzel-Czachura, prof. UŚ has decided to create a group of researchers interested in morality and invite them to co-create the Moral Psychology Center. The Center concentrates on research of human morality from a psychological perspective.

We also cooperate with world-renowned psychologist Prof. Philip Zimbardo in the Heroic Imagination Project, whose leader in Poland is Prof. Dr. Hab. Agnieszka Wilczynska. We train Polish teachers on how to work with people of all ages, especially with children, on their morality. In our training, we discuss such phenomena as bystander effect, growth mindset, stereotypes, and autostereotypes.

Phenomenon worth researching

Human morality is one of the most interesting phenomena which scientists (not only psychologists) can study.
