Moral psychology is a growing field of interdisciplinary research that draws on both normative reflection and theorizing in philosophy and empirical research and modeling in psychology and other social sciences. Increasingly, technology is involved in moral psychological phenomena both as a measurement device (e.g., self-tracking tools) and as an ameliorative intervention. This increased integration of mind and machine raises multiple questions that can only be addressed by ethical reflection. Students will come to understand many of the main concepts and theories in contemporary moral psychology. In addition, they will learn to criticize methodologies and analyses in the empirical literature. Those who take the course for credit will also become acquainted in depth with a cutting-edge problem in moral psychology and receive feedback from both the instructor and at least one other expert in the field.
