Seminar Series: From Moral Learning to Self-Understanding
The topic of the seminar series “From Moral Learning to Self-Understanding" is the connection between moral learning and development, and the development of self-related psychological abilities in any of its multitude aspects e.g. self-awareness, self-understanding, self-knowledge, identity, group identity, character, personality, the self in social interaction, the second person approach, just to mention a few. The aim of the seminar series is to further our understanding of questions related to these topics. These include questions such as, what are the developmental processes at the heart of our self-understanding? What is the relation between the former and the psychological processes underlying our learning moral value? What is moral learning anyways? What is the role of the emotions and social interaction in that? And should the philosophy of mind and psychology be concerned at all with questions pertaining to ethics and moral psychology, and vice versa?
