The Cambridge Moral Psychology Research Group brings together researchers from different disciplines—including neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, law, and others—who have a common interest in understanding moral behaviour. The aims of the group are to (1) foster inter-disciplinary collaboration, (2) help its members learn about relevant methods used in other fields, and (3) host discussions with leading academics about the key contemporary questions in moral psychology.
