Stich Leverhulme Lectures on Moral Psychology, May 2009
Lecture 1: The Definition of Morality


Lecture Abstract: According to the eminent psychologist, Jonathan Haidt, “the psychological study of morality has been dominated by politically liberal researchers”, and “the lack of moral and political diversity among researchers has led to an inappropriate narrowing of the moral domain”. Is he right? This talk will explore some of the issues that underlie Haidt's provocative claim.

This is the first of four Leverhulme Lectures on Moral Psychology by Professor Stephen Stich (Philosophy, Rutgers University), who was Leverhulme Visiting Professor of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield from March to May 2009.
