A lecture on October 28

Swarthmore President Rebecca Chopp hosts Political Science Professor Ben Berger in a lecture:

"Guilty—with an explanation: Moral engagement and disengagement in democractic life"

Each day we engage with certain moral principles and follow through with appropriate actions. We also selectively disengage from other moral principles. How do these processes work? Should some kinds of moral engagement and disengagement concern liberal democracies more than others? This topic bridges research from political theory, moral philosophy, social psychology, and cognitive neuroscience.
