This conference brings together an international panel of philosophers to discuss the foundations of ethics in the light of Darwinian theories of how the human “moral sense” evolved.
Issues to be addressed by the speakers include:
- Questions in moral epistemology: e.g., if the moral sense evolved through Darwinian processes, would this undermine claims to moral knowledge?
- Questions in moral metaphysics: e.g., if moral facts exist, could they be products of Darwinian evolutionary processes?
- Questions in moral psychology: e.g., can contemporary moral views, such as a moral commitment to advancing human rights or to protecting the rights of animals, be explained by Darwinian evolutionary processes?
