John Mikhail Authors New Book on Moral Judgment
September 26, 2011
How do humans acquire the ability to make moral judgments? Is moral knowledge innate or explicitly taught? Is there a universal sense of justice?
John Mikhail, Professor of Law and Philosophy and Associate Dean for International and Transational Legal Studies at Georgetown University Law Center, tackles these questions in his new book Elements of Moral Cognition: Rawls’ Linguistic Analogy and the Cognitive Science of Moral and Legal Judgment (Cambridge University Press, 2011). A complete release is available here.
The Department wishes to congratulate John on this accomplishment.
