Guest Lecturer: Bertram Malle of Brown University

Description:


"Myths of Freedom and Responsibility: How People Think about Free Will and How It Matters for Moral Judgment”


Professor Bertram Malle's research examines the cognitive tools that humans bring to social interaction (often called "social cognition"), especially the capacity to recognize intentional actions, make inferences about other people's mental states, and explain people's behavior. Another focus is on how those cognitive tools figure in moral judgment, especially blame. Other topics of interest include people's conceptions of free will and the relation between social cognition and language.
