Last week, the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies sponsored a daylong conference in Virginia featuring neuroscientists and philosophers who discussed questions such as “how does morality operate in the brain?” and “can advances in the study of the brain can tell us anything new about ethics?”
Fortunately for those who didn’t attend (including me), Ronald Bailey of Reason Magazine was there taking notes, and has since published a review of the event.
