Moral Judgments, Representations, and Prototypes, Paul M.
Goldman, John Deigh, Naomi Scheman• In order to understand the nature and limits of moral reasoning, many new ethical naturalists look to cognitive science for an account of how people actually reason. Agency and Responsibility James P. At the same time, many cognitive scientists have become increasingly interested in moral reasoning as a complex form of human cognition that challenges their theoretical models.
He is also fascinated by the history of his field. The final essay describes the discovery of the visual functions of the temporal and parietal lobes. The fourth essay entails a mystery: how did the largely ignored brain structure called the "hippocampus minor" come to be, and why was it so important in the controversies that swirled Essays in Social Neuroscience (Bradford Books) Darwin's theories?
The essays in this anthology deal with the growing interconnections between moral philosophy and research that draws upon neuroscience, developmental psychology, and evolutionary biology.
Sterba, Susan Khin-Zaw, Helen E. These essays—by leaders in the field—reflect the range of disciplines engaged and questions addressed today in social neuroscience.
The second essay focuses on Leonardo da Vinci's beautiful anatomical work on the brain and the eye: was Leonardo drawing the body observed, the body remembered, the body read about, or his own dissections? Sections and Contributors Ethics Naturalized, Owen Flanagan, Mark L.
The result of this collaborative, and often critical, interchange is an exciting intellectual ferment at the frontiers of research into human mentality. In the 20th century, the arbitrary barrier between neuroscience and social psychology was reinforced by the specialized knowledge required by each field and an emphasis on scientific work in isolation from other disciplines; the biological and social perspectives on mind and behavior developed for the most part independently of each other.
This cross-disciplinary interchange coincides, not accidentally, with the renewed interest in ethical naturalism.
The final essay describes the discovery of the visual functions of the temporal and parietal lobes.
Neuroscientists often considered social factors irrelevant or minimally important, while cognitive and social scientists tended to ignore biological constraints and mechanisms as leading to what they mistakenly thought of as reductionism.
