"The Evolution of Our Moral Intuitions" Lecture & Discussion

"Evolution Matters" Spring Lecture Series at the HMNH: April 26 - The Evolution of Our Moral Intuitions Lecture by Marc Hauser How do we decide what is morally right and wrong? Historically, there have been two answers to this question. Either the human mind deliberates moral judgments based upon a set of principles to justify our actions, or our judgments are the result of intuitions mediated by emotions. Harvard professor Marc Hauser argues that morality - at some level - may be hard-wired into our brains, an innate "moral grammar" that has evolved with us over time. That intuitive mechanism may be more important in what shapes moral decision-making than what we learn from school, church, or family. Free and open to the public. 6:00 PM Discussion afterwards at Om Restaurant & Lounge; "Exploring the relationship between evolution and culture." Temple Bar 1688 Mass. Ave. Cambridge , MA 02140
