Many theories in the field of morality research claim that morality is about concepts like cooperation and altruism. The theory of “Morality As Cooperation” has used game-theoretical principles to derive seven domains in which morality should occur. This provides an alternative to, for example, “Moral Foundations Theory”, which was derived in a data-driven way. To expand on this, we invite three speakers as a build-up towards a debate, entitled “Is morality always and everywhere, cooperative?”
You are cordially invited think about the future of morality research with us through this symposium, taking place on Tuesday, Nov 7th (13:30-17:00) at IPO 0.98, TU Eindhoven.… Continue reading
