Research clusters old
The Centre provides a platform for collaboration between researchers in philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, law, medicine, applied ethics and bioethics. A distinctive feature is our focus upon the philosophical, ethical and legal issues raised by the cognitive neurosciences.
- 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;
- 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 work falls into five main research clusters:
- Human Agency and Selfhood - Cluster Leader: Prof. Catriona Mackenzie
- Moral Cognition, Neuroethics, and Neurolaw - Cluster Leader: Prof. Jeanette Kennett
- Applied Ethics, Bioethics, and Clinical Ethics - Cluster Leader: Prof. Wendy Rogers
- Mind, Brain, Evolution, and Culture - Cluster Leader: A/Prof. Richard Menary
- Human Rights and Social Justice - Cluster Leader: Prof. Denise Meyerson
The Centre also hosts the following:
- The Agency and Moral Cognition Research Network - Network Leader: Prof. Jeanette Kennett
Our members also work on the Australian Neurolaw Database Project.
