Empirical Perspectives on Ethics

Collected Papers, Volume 2

This chapter discusses character and virtue ethics, moral motivation, moral disagreement, and the role of thought experiments in ethics. Though it covers a lot of ground, the leitmotif that runs through the chapter is that there is a growing body of empirical evidence in psychology and neuroscience that philosophers interested in these issues cannot afford to ignore.

Keywords:   ethics, moral motivation, moral disagreement, thought experiments
