  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: humanity, uniquely human features, discrimination

This contribution addresses the role of perceived humanity vs. reduced humanity of others on social judgment. Innovatively, in this study humanity of a target was manipulated on the basis of the combination of two uniquely human dimensions, that is, possessing (vs. dispossessing) prosocial values and secondary (vs. primary) emotions. Evidence confirmed the role of reduced humanity in increasing target devaluation, and reducing perceived similarity with the self and human prototypicality of the target.
