When studying emotions and morality, this is the question everyone wants an answer for. However, this is also the question no one truly interested in knowing what they are should ever ask. There are just too many ins and outs. Trying to reduce either of these two concepts to a single definition is therefore reductive, misguided, and even harmful. Whilst categorising morality and emotion as “it” might appear to make things easier at a first glance, it is ultimately impossible. Just as individuals are composed of many layers, so do morality and emotion share multiple disciplinary standpoints, constraints and forms of significance, being incredibly fluid across time and space. A true grasp of this reciprocity can only be attained by a meaningful interchange of all of these paradigms.
