How We Know “Right” and “Wrong”

How can we know intuitively what is right and what is wrong, without any deep thinking? Why do we feel like punishing someone who violates a norm? And still, how can judicial decisions at times go at odds with our common sense of right and wrong? Also, what role does culture play when we find discrepancies between groups with respect to their moral values? We are investigating lay understandings of notions such as responsibility, intention, rights, and ethical/moral correctness.
