The Descent of Moral Sentiment
An interdisciplinary symposium on the ontogeny and evolution of human morality
February 13-15, 2017, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
How did we come to be moral? It is beyond doubt that the capacity for morality is a product of evolution that develops robustly in living human beings. Yet the origins, function, and genealogy of this capacity continue to be subjects of intense debate. This three-day interdisciplinary symposium will host sixteen esteemed philosophers and scientists with presentations on the latest research related to the ontogeny and evolution of (the capacity for) morality.
