Moral Agency Group

Morality

The Moral Agency Group (MAG) will meet every two-three weeks over coffee to discuss readings related to the topic of moral agency: why and how do people behave in moral and ethical ways?  We will discuss psychological foundations for the development and sustenance of moral agency, and philosophical conditions for moral agency and responsibility.  Each semester, we will explore a particular focused question within the study of moral agency.  This group is designed to encourage active interdisciplinary discussion, and is organized by Michael Burroughs and Daryl Cameron from the Rock Ethics Institute.
