Emotions, Morality and Neuroscience à propos Jesse Prinz
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Jesse Prinz has excelled in defense of naturalism in morality, in particular a kind of subjectivist, relativistic and a-rationalistic naturalism. His sensibility theory comprises a rejection of innatism in morals, besides to involve theses on philosophy of language, epistemology and empirical oriented disciplines like moral psychology, cognitive sciences and neuroscience. The fourth workshop of the Chiron Group will discuss the best-known arguments put forward by Prinz in the field of morality, in addition to confronting them with the positions of Brazilian colleagues. Furthermore, Prinz will present and discuss a still unpublished work on the moral self and will put in perspective the empirical turn in philosophy in the beginning of this century.
