Religion and the Scope of the Moral Domain

Abstract:

According to Elliot Turiel, religious affiliation does not influence
the distinction between so-called “moral" and “conventional” norms. By
contrast, according to Jonathan Haidt, religious affiliation results
in a broadened moral domain: As he puts it, “big gods have big
moralities." This talk will present new data undermining both Turiel's
and Haidt’s views

De-Freuding Implicit Attitudes.

Abstract: Psychologists and philosophers treat implicit attitudes as
automatic and unconscious mental states—a view reminiscent of Freud’s
theory of unconscious desires and urges. I present a competing view
about the nature of attitudes, and show that it is better supported by
the empirical evidence.
