Moral virtue and self-control discussion

Prof. Roy Baumeister (Psychology, Florida State)
Prof. Richard Holton (Philosophy, Cambridge)
Chaired by Dr. Eric Levy (Judge Business School, Cambridge)

Monday, May 16, 2016
Sidgwick Lecture Block Room 3, Sidgwick Site

Prof. Baumeister and Prof. Holton have joined forces to empirically investigate the Aristotelian distinction between a self-controlled person who faces but overcomes temptation and a virtuous agent who is not tempted in the first place. Their research might shed new light on the familiar problem of how to best deal with challenges to our resolutions.

The event will comprise two 30-minutes talks, followed by a discussion and Q+A with the audience. It will be featured in a Minerva podcast by Joshi Gottlieb: The event is part of a research project sponsored by the Templeton Foundation.

About the speakers and chair:

Roy Baumeister is currently professor of psychology at Florida State. His work explores how we think about the self, and why we feel and act the way we do. He is known for his work on the subjects of willpower, self-control, and self-esteem, and how they relate to human morality and success.

Richard Holton is professor of philosophy at Cambridge and a Fellow of Peterhouse. His current work focuses on moral psychology and related fields. He is known for seminal contributions to the philosophy of language and action, notably addiction and weakness of will.

Eric Levy is University lecturer at the Judge Business School at Cambridge. His research focuses on prosocial behaviour and charitable giving, as well as the role of interpersonal relationships in consumer behaviour.

About the Moral Psychology Research Group:
The Cambridge Moral Psychology Research Group brings together researchers from different disciplines?including neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, law, and others?who have a common interest in understanding moral behaviour. The aims of the group are to (1) foster inter-disciplinary collaboration, (2) help its members learn about relevant methods used in other fields, and (3) host discussions with leading academics about the key contemporary questions in moral psychology.
