Research project The project investigates the relation between moral thinking and motivation to act, and the relevance of this relation for other questions, in particular questions about moral objectivity.
Moral thinking is intimately connected to dispositions to act. If someone judges that an act is morally wrong, we normally expect her to be unwilling to perform that act, and to have a negative attitude towards such acts. According to some philosophers, this indicates that morality is in some sense subjective: a matter of being for and against rather than of what is true or false. The project aims at better understanding the relation between moral thinking and moral motivation, and at understanding the extent to which this relation might indicate that morality is subjective in some interesting sense.
