Moral psychology

Our research

Our staff have a number of research interests related to moral psychology, including desire, rationality, psychopathy, the emotions, moral responsibility and love.

Investigations into these topics focus on both the past and present – from their treatment throughout the history of philosophy to how they apply to ethical issues today. As part of this, our research tackles decision-making practices within the professions, as well as in personal relationships, leadership, and in the administration of judicial systems.
