Moral reasoning is a study in psychology that overlaps with moral philosophy. Prominent figures include Lawrence Kohlberg, Carol Gilligan and John Reed.

Although all moral choice can be seen as personal choice, some choices can be seen as an economic choice, or an ethical choice described by some ethical code or regulated by ethical relationships with others.

This branch of psychology is concerned with how these issues are perceived by ordinary people, and so is the foundation of descriptive ethics.
