This introductory chapter sets out the book’s main theme, namely the ways in which findings and theories in the cognitive sciences can contribute to, and sometimes reshape, traditional philosophical conversations and debates. It discusses how the author’s friend and former colleague, Richard Nisbett played a key role in shaping his thinking, and the history of his interest in moral psychology and moral theory. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Richard Nisbett, cognitive sciences, moral psychology, moral theory
