Joshua Greene, the John and Ruth Hazel Associate Professor of the Social Sciences and director of the Moral Cognition Lab at Harvard University, will discuss themes in his recent book, “Moral Tribes: Emotion, Reason, and the Gap Between Us and Them” (Penguin Press, 2013) in a lecture at the College of the Holy Cross on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. in Rehm Library. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Greene’s work focuses on the intersection of psychology, neuroscience, and moral philosophy. Much of his research is motivated by philosophical and practical questions about how we can solve the moral problems that divide us. In “Moral Tribes,” he reveals the underlying causes of modern conflict and shows us when to trust our instincts, when to reason, and how the right kind of reasoning can move us forward.
Greene has published his studies in journal articles and book chapters. “Moral Tribes” is his first book.
The lecture is co-sponsored by the Rev. Michael C. McFarland, S.J. Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture, Montserrat, and the departments of psychology and philosophy. For more information and to watch lectures online, visit www.holycross.edu/mcfarlandcenter.
