The Moral Psychology Research Group is delighted to announce our final event of 2014, a dialogue between philosophy and neuroscience on self-control and its failures. The event will be chaired by Dr Benedetto de Martino (Psychology, University of Cambridge). It will be followed by a wine reception.

About the speakers:

Prof. Todd Hare is assistant professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. He is a neuroscientist and neuroeconomist investigating the neuronal mechanisms of decision-making. In particular, he is studying the impact of factors such as stress, social feedback, and attention on both self-control and normative decision making.

Dr Lubomira Radoilska is Lecturer of Philosophy at the University of Kent and also affiliated to the University of Cambridge. Her research focuses on developing an Aristotelian theory of autonomous agency. Her recent monograph, Addiction and Weakness of Will (OUP, 2013) argues for an integrated account of these phenomena as limit cases of autonomy.

This talk is part of the Moral Psychology Research Group series.
