Description It seems that contemporary moral psychology has some reservations about the power of more formal types of moral education (e.g., moral essays, codes of conduct etc.) and it rather emphasizes the more informal methods, e.g. art. Therefore, I will focus on narrative artistic forms, with the aim of showing that one of them - rap - is an overlooked, yet extremely interesting object for the study of moral education and the cultural transmission of moral information. First, rap will be introduced in the light of evolutionary aesthetics and cognitive narratology and then it will be analyzed in terms of how much it could function as a medium of moral change.
