Faraci, David (2015) 'Book review of 'Moral psychology & human agency : philosophical essays on the science of ethics' by Justin D'Arms and Daniel Jacobson, Oxford University Press : Oxford 2014.', Notre Dame philosophical reviews. .

Abstract

This collection contains essays from the Workshop on Moral Psychology and Human Agency at the University of Michigan in 2012, funded through co-editor Daniel Jacobson's Templeton grant, "The Science of Ethics." The editors describe the contributors as "philosophers who share our conviction that scientific inquiry is relevant to various classic philosophical questions, while also showing an appreciation for the difficulty of these questions that is not always evident in empirical moral psychology" (2). For the most part, the contributions bear this out. I'll examine each, critiquing them as stand-alone works in addition to discussing some of their connections to each other and the book's themes.
