The Moral Psychology Handbook by John M. Doris, The Moral Psychology Research Group


The Moral Psychology Handbook by John M. Doris, The Moral Psychology Research Group

The Moral Psychology Handbook offers a survey of contemporary moral psychology, integrating evidence and argument from philosophy and the human sciences. The chapters cover major issues in moral psychology, including moral reasoning, character, moral emotion, positive psychology, moral rules, the neural correlates of ethical judgment, and the attribution of moral responsibility. Each chapter is a collaborative effort, written jointly by leading researchers in the field.


Review from previous edition Its thirteen chapters, penned by a stellar collection of twenty philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists, offer an outstanding view of the current state of this now-hopping field. Unlike many handbooks, however, this one significantly adds to, and does not simply review, the literature. It is essential reading for anyone interested in moral psychology, and it should probably be read by anyone doing ethics, period. * Dan Haybron, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
