Description:

6 p.m. Jan. 30: The Moral Behavior of Ethics Professors


Philosophy Professor Eric Schwitzgebel explores the moral behavior of ethics professors exploring if professional ethicists behave any morally better than do non-ethicists of similar social background? If not, do they at least show greater consistency between their normative attitudes and their outward behavior? Despite a long philosophical tradition associating philosophical reflection with improved moral behavior, these questions have never been empirically examined. I present convergent evidence from studies of about a dozen different types of moral behavior.
