The Gratitude of Exchange and the Gratitude of Caring
A Developmental-Interactionist Perspective of Moral Emotion
This chapter examines the difference between gratitude of exchange and gratitude of caring from a developmental-interactionist perspective of moral emotion. It suggests that complete treatments of gratitude must recognize its dual nature because important implications of failing to do so follow. It attempts to relate each form of gratitude to its biological origins in curiosity and attachment, and highlights the importance of this distinction for understanding important social issues such as the nature of evil.
