Abstract

In this comment, we attempt to explain, within the framework of Construal Level Theory, and based on new data that we collected, the effect of abstract and concrete mind sets on moral judgment. We also share our initial thoughts about the (lack of consistent) effects of temporal distance on moral judgment and suggest directions for future research.
