Moral Attitudes and Decision-Making at the Kenan Institute for Ethics explores why people think and do what they do through the lenses of psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and sociology. Through national and Duke-wide survey projects, as well as in a new, vertically-integrated lab, students and faculty work together to better understand aspects of human motivation and human behavior, and to disseminate these findings broadly.
