Normative Ethics and Meta-ethics


Our research

The Normative Ethics and Meta-ethics research theme explores the nature of ethical judgements and practices, and the prospects for systematic explanations of our ethical lives. What makes things good and bad, right and wrong? When we say that something is good or wrong, what do we mean? How does this affect what we should do, practically? What limits are there to our moral partiality (to family members and friends)? What is the connection between our moral practices and human emotions and psychology?
