Event Description

Evolution and Moral Epistemology
April 18-20th, 2018, Utrecht University

​This is the final conference of the research program Evolutionary Ethics (2014-2019). The aim is to present new research on evolution and moral epistemology.

Insights from evolutionary theory, as well as recent empirical findings in fields such as moral psychology and anthropology, have raised several questions of interest to moral philosophers. Does evolutionary theory affect the plausibility of different metaethical doctrines, such as robust realism, Humean constructivism, or skepticism? Do so-called Evolutionary Debunking Arguments (EDAs) provide a genuine and original challenge for moral and metaethical theories? How should moral truth and justification be understood in the first place?
