The Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics provides a platform for interaction and collaboration between researchers in philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, law, medicine, applied ethics and bioethics. A distinctive feature is its focus upon the philosophical, ethical and legal issues raised by the cognitive neurosciences.
More specifically, its aims are:
- To foster interdisciplinary theoretical research on human agency and the self, moral cognition, the foundations of moral and legal norms, and moral and legal responsibility, and
- To address practical issues at the intersection of ethics, law and medicine (bioethics, clinical ethics, and biolaw) and at the intersection of ethics, cognitive science and law (neuroethics and neurolaw).
Our activities include a conference and workshop program, a distinguished visitors program, support for selected research projects, postgraduate supervision, a postdoctoral program, and a schedule of seminars and reading groups.
