Ethical Systems Interview (January 2016)

My Approach to Ethical Systems:

Although traditional rational choice theory predicts that people will always defect in one-shot prisoner’s dilemmas, exceptions to this prediction are well documented. A longstanding challenge in evolutionary biology has been to explain how individuals who cooperate in one-shot dilemmas could survive in highly competitive environments.

My work in this area has focused on the strategic role of moral emotions in helping meet this challenge.
