Working Papers in Ethics and Moral Psychology is a new speaker series conducted under the auspices of the Icahn School of Medicine Bioethics Program. It is conceived as a working group where speakers are invited to present well-developed, as yet unpublished work. The focus of the group will be interdisciplinary, with a primary focus on topics in ethics, bioethics, neuroethics, and moral psychology. The meeting will begin with a brief presentation by the invited speaker and most of the remaining time will be devoted to a discussion of the paper. The speakers will make their papers available in advance of their presentation to those who sign up for the Working Papers mailing list.
