Research Topics in Moral Psychology - PHIL4106

Year - 2020

Moral Psychology is the branch of philosophy that addresses the moral status of our motives, intentions, emotions, and character traits, as well as the nature of the psychological processes that lie behind moral judgment and morally good or bad actions. In this unit we will engage with recent philosophical work on topics in this field, such as questions concerning forgiveness, virtue and vice, evil, and moral responsibility.
