PCT12: Moral Psychology
Our working group's goal is to bring together philosophers whose work focuses on the complex relations between values and mind for fruitful interaction and discussion. We are open to traditional as well as empirical approaches to the subject.

Our goal was primarily to facilitate conversation about issues in moral psychology, to provide speakers with useful feedback on their work, and to develop a sense of community. These goals were accomplished through the planning and execution of our one budgeted event, which was the CNY Moral Psychology Workshop. It was held on Dec 4, 2021.

- Irene Liu, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Le Moyne College

Four papers received feedback on their work from Workshop participants. While it is too soon to tell where these papers will eventually be published, it is hoped that they will credit our Workshop. We were also to draw at least one student into the conversation at the workshop, who is now considering a philosophy major.
