Abstract

Cet article traite du rôle joué par les émotions incidentes dans les préférences altruistes. Nous envisageons cette question dans le cadre des comportements pro- environnementaux à travers les dons que font les individus pour les associations de protection de lenvironnement. La méthodologie mise en place sinscrit dans le champ de léconomie comportementale. Le jeu utilisé est celui du dictateur où chaque individu est placé dans un contexte émotionnel réel, les émotions étant induites par des photogra- phies préalablement choisies en nous appuyant sur la littérature en psychologie. Nous montrons que les émotions incidentes modi ent de manière signi cative la générosité. De manière étonnante, le cas dans lequel la générosité est la plus faible est celui où les individus sont exposés à une photographie en lien direct avec l'environnement induisant une émotion incidente positive.
