How does moral reasoning work? Do we first turn to moral theories from Bentham or Kant to resolve moral confusion? Jonathan Haidt, a moral psychologist, claims we act first and then defend our behavior much as a lawyer defends a client. Still, how should moral reasoning work? We consider dead dogs and Haidt’s example of Julie and Mark.
