PDF Moral Psychology (Bradford Books) (Volume 2): PDF

by Walter Sinnott-Armstrong

For much of the twentieth century, philosophy and science went their separate ways.
In moral philosophy, fear of the so-called naturalistic fallacy kept moral philosophers from
incorporating developments in biology and psychology. Since the 1990s, however, many philosophers
have drawn on recent advances in cognitive psychology, brain science, and evolutionary psychology to
inform their work. This collaborative trend is especially strong in moral philosophy, and these
three volumes bring together some of the most innovative work by both philosophers and psychologists
in this emerging interdisciplinary field. The contributors to volume 2 discuss recent empirical
research that uses the diverse methods of cognitive science to investigate moral judgments,
emotions, and actions. Each chapter includes an essay, comments on the essay by other scholars, and
a reply by the author(s) of the original essay. Topics include moral intuitions as a kind of fast
and frugal heuristics, framing effects in moral judgments, an analogy between Chomsky's universal
grammar and moral principles, the role of emotions in moral beliefs, moral disagreements, the
semantics of moral language, and moral responsibility.

Walter Sinnott-Armstrong is
