Emotions and context can influence moral decisions. The present study examines the influence of emotions, disgust, and organizational context on moral judgments. The emotion of disgust was elicited on participants while one of three moral dilemmas that varied in context philosophical, social, and organizational were presented. The results indicated that the social situation elicited happiness and perceptions of moral wrongness. The philosophical situation elicited sadness in participants. The organizational situation elicited disgust in participants.
