PHIL 348: The Moral Mind (Tier 2 INDV)

This course is an introduction to the moral mind from the neuroscientific, philosophical and psychological perspective. Many traditional philosophical problems about morality are being illuminated by current work in psychology and neuroscience. In this course, we will look at several of these problems. In each case, we will begin with a presentation of the philosophical problems, and we will proceed to examine recent empirical work on the topic. A wide range of topics will be covered, including moral judgment, agency, the self, and punishment.
