This workshop will bring together researchers whose work contributes to a scientific understanding of our moral practice and/or examines how this understanding comes to bear on traditional meta-ethical topics including but not limited to the truth, objectivity, meaning and epistemology of moral judgments. We will have a broad range of approaches represented to promote fruitful interdisciplinary interaction, including moral psychology, game theory, evolutionary biology and philosophical analysis.
