Ethics Not Based on Religion




Duke/Chapel Hill Kenan Workshop On Naturalized Ethics

February 12-13, 2005

Overview:

This workshop is dedicated to recent trends in naturalized ethics. It is a follow-up to last year's workshop, which focused on the contributions of Allan Gibbard and others who argue that emotion is important to moral judgement. Here, we are bringing together two philosophers who are using the methods of experimental psychology to examine moral judgments and judgments of responsibility; a philosopher who has been investigating morality using the resources of evolutionary game theory; and a psychologist who has studied abnormal moral reasoning in psychopaths and other clinical populations using behavioral and neuroscientific methods. All of these researchers are leading voices in the emerging subfield of naturalized ethics.
