The joy of obligation: Human cultural worldviews can enhance the rewards of meeting obligations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review

Abstract

Is it particularly human to feel coerced into fulfilling moral obligations, or is it particularly human to enjoy them? I argue for the importance of taking into account how culture promotes prosocial behavior, discussing how Confucian heritage culture enhances the satisfaction of meeting one's obligations.
