There has been considerable interest recently in empirical approaches to the study of morality: What are the biological, cultural and psychological factors that explain the shape of our moral judgments, norms and practices? This conference will focus on current research into these facts - particularly findings from cognitive science - and their relevance to a philosophical theory of morality.

The symposium is co-hosted by the Center for Cognitive Sciences and Semantics of the University of Latvia and the Department of Philosophy at Kansas State University
