Behavioral ethics is the study of the how and why people make the moral (and immoral) judgments and action choices that they do. Its focus is not on philosophy, trying to decide which horn of a challenging ethical dilemma to select. Rather, behavioral ethics derives from psychology, cognitive science and related fields. It seeks to understand why good people sometimes make poor moral decisions and how we can best improve moral decision making. Today’s presenters recently published a book bearing the title of today’s session with Routledge Press in London.
