Roundtable: Causal Judgment and Moral Judgment
Brooklyn Law School’s Center for Law, Language & Cognition will hold an Ethics Roundtable: Causal Judgment and Moral Judgment.
It has long been known that people’s judgments about whether one thing caused another can impact their moral judgments. More recently, however, a series of studies has shown that there is in reality an effect in the opposite direction. That is, people’s judgments about whether an action is morally good or morally bad can affect their judgments about whether that action was the cause of some further outcome. This program will discuss this surprising effect and provide new evidence about the underlying cognitive processes that explain it.
