Generalizing a model beyond the inherence heuristic and applying it to beliefs about objective value

  • Graham Wood (a1)

Abstract

The inherence heuristic is characterized as part of an instantiation of a more general model that describes the interaction between undeveloped intuitions, produced by System 1 heuristics, and developed beliefs, constructed by System 2 reasoning. The general model is described and illustrated by examining another instantiation of the process that constructs belief in objective moral value.
