The Six Pillars of Morality

 

 

From Moral foundations theory (Wikipedia)

 

  1. Care / harm / empathy and compassion     (individual thriving)
  2. Fairness / reciprocity / proportionality / cheating     (relative thriving)
  3. Liberty / oppression     (individual vs. group thriving)
  4. Loyalty to in-group / betrayal     (group thriving)
  5. Respect for authority / tradition / subversion     (group thriving)
  6. Sanctity / purity / disgust     (individual / group thriving)  

 

There are also sexual norms:

  1. Monogamy
  2. Patriarchy (guarding and controlling females and their sexuality, protecting females from males, prohibition on homosexuality)

 

All eight can be seen as families of primary values.  

Primary values fall into two categories: interpersonal (1, 2) and cultural / group norms (3-8).  

7 and 8 can also be seen as interpersonal.
