PHL 264 Topics in Moral Psychology (3 credits)

This course will explore human moral judgment, decision making, and behavior.  Included are examinations of issues about whether the psychological processes involved in human moral practice are innate, about the respective roles of emotion and reasoning in moral judgment, and about the extent to which cultural forces shape our moral beliefs.  Following the lead of much of the field in recent years, our focus will be primarily on working out the philosophical implications of recent scientific investigation on the topics.
