From disgust to contempt-speech: The nature of contempt on the map of prejudicial emotions

Bilewicz Michał , Olga Kamińska , Michał Winiewski , Wiktor Soral


Analyzing the contempt as an intergroup emotion, we suggest that contempt and anger are not built upon each other, whereas disgust seems to be the most elementary and specific basic-emotional antecedent of contempt. Concurring with Gervais & Fessler, we suggest that many instances of “hate speech” are in fact instances of “contempt speech” – being based on disgust-driven contempt rather than hate
