Is morality always and everywhere, cooperative?

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
