Experimental Ethics

A Multidisciplinary Approach

By Ewa Nowak

Facing otherness in everyday interpersonal relations, making decisions within demanding contexts, living with the plenitude of values - all of these experiences permanently challenge one's moral cognition. Neither a single moral agent nor ethics itself can pretend omniscience when dealing with complex, real world situations. In this book, author Ewa Nowak presents her own research findings to account for the experimental nature of ethics. Nowak questions a popular conviction that declaring values and following norms is a sufficient condition to be moral. She applies Georg Lind's dual-aspect theory of morality to all sorts of spectacular contexts. (Series: Development in Humanities - Vol. 6)
