Advances in Experimental Moral Psychology brings together leading scholars in the field to provide fresh theoretical perspectives on research in philosophy and psychology. Reflecting a diverse and active field of study, contributors are drawn from across both subjects to pursue central questions concerning moral psychology. Covering a wide-ranging selection of arguments, issues and debates, topics includes the role of emotion in moral judgment (both at a general theoretical level and with regards to specific topics); the moral psychology behind political orientation; the nature and content of moral character and more higher-order questions concerning the status of morality itself. For philosophers and researchers in the social and behavioral science, this exciting new volume reveals the beneficial results of integrating these two disciplines and illustrates the promise of this experimental approach to moral psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This timely collection showcases an emerging trend -- collaborations between philosophers and psychologists on topics of mutual interest. Contributions offer new perspectives on familiar issues, such as character, the bearer of virtues, objectivity, moral conflict and disagreement, and relativism. New or underdiscussed topics are also featured, including the nature of moral conviction, our reactions to others' expressions of virtue, the moral behavior of ethicists, and pollution and purity in moral judgments. This book is required reading for all who are interested in collaborative investigations in ethics. -- Nancy E. Snow, Professor of Philosophy, Marquette University, USA
This book is brimming with fresh ideas from leading figures in empirically informed moral psychology. It both introduces this vibrant field and moves it forward. Essential. -- Ron Mallon, Director, Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology Program and Associate Professor of Philosophy, Washington University, St. Louis, USA
Considering the wide variety of issues addressed, the overall quality of the articles, and the novel insights into human moral psychology and their relevance to important philosophical issues, Advances in Experimental Moral Psychology is strongly recommended for philosophers, psychologists, and others interested in gaining exposure to some of the pioneering theoretical and experimental work being conducted at the intersection of philosophy and moral psychology. * Journal of Moral Philosophy *
