Imagine that an out of control train is heading down a track, and in a matter of seconds it will kill five innocent, unsuspecting people. You are on a footbridge above the track, and you alone can stop the train, but the only way to stop it is to shove a large individual in front of the train, sending one person to certain death in order to save five others. Would that be right? Obligatory? Permissible? Forbidden? Dilemmas like this provoke strong and contradictory moral judgments. Dr. Shargel will discuss recent findings from psychology and neuroscience on the processes that lead to moral judgments, and argue that the leading theory is confused about the moral role of emotions.
