Biologically moral?

Join Dr Guy Kahane as he reviews some of the most striking findings of recent neuroscientific research on morality. Guy will end the event by considering whether this research might indeed change the way we think about ethics.


Moral philosophers have been arguing for centuries about the fundamental questions of ethics. In recent years, neuroscience has joined the debate, reporting surprising findings about the neural basis of morality, and the role of emotion in moral judgment. Some scientists predict that this research will revolutionise the practice of ethics; many ethicists think that this is confused, and that there is only one way to pursue ethics: from the philosopher’s armchair. Join Dr Guy Kahane as he reviews some of the most striking findings of recent neuroscientific research on morality, as well as intriguing findings from neuroimaging experiments. Guy will end the event by considering whether this research might indeed change the way we think about ethics.
