A philosophy of mind perspective on mindreading and morality (01P04307)

I investigate the specific role that mindreading plays in our moral cognition. To what extent do individual differences in mindreading influence our moral cognition (first objective)? To what extent do mindreading deficits contribute to moral deficits (second objective)? I will address potential shortcomings in the current philosophy of mind debate on mindreading and morality (third objective).
