Abstract and Keywords

Scholarship on justice and affect has expanded dramatically in recent years, spanning investigations of the relationships between justice and discrete emotions as well as justice and affective dimensions (e.g., valence). The present chapter summarizes and builds on the latter developments by exploring how several leading theories of justice can organize and lend insight to research that takes a dimensional approach to affect. In particular, we explore the valence dimension of affect in relation to the self-interest model of justice, the uncertainty dimension of affect in relation to the uncertainty management model of justice, the morality dimension of affect in relation to the deontic model of justice, and the social dimension of affect in relation to the relational models of justice. We also discuss the value of the dimensional approach for organizing prior findings, highlighting novel insights, and identifying new pathways for justice research.

Keywords: justice, affect, emotions, instrumental model, uncertainty management, deontic model, relational models, discrete emotions, emotion dimensions
