Empathy and moral judgment

Tony Jack, Jared Friedman, Chris Myers, and I have a new paper in which we report the results of our research on the effects of empathy on moral judgment. The paper is forthcoming in a volume of papers on experimental philosophy of mind, but you can read a pre-publication (not quite final) version of it here.


Opposing domains in the brain

Tony Jack and his colleagues have a forthcoming paper in Neuroimage which presents evidence of competing brain networks for social and physical cognition. Their findings provide fresh empirical support for a conjecture made in our 2006 paper on the phenomenal stance.
