The field of phenomenological research in recent decades has expanded beyond epistemological concerns to issues in ethical thinking. The questions of a possible phenomenology of moral experience—can there be such a study, what would its proper object be, and how do we isolate what is distinctively moral in our affective experience?—are still in dispute. The newly formed Centre for Philosophy and Phenomenology of Religion at ACU will be hosting a workshop to explore the ongoing development of phenomenological perspectives on moral experience.
