2016 APS Convention
May 26–29, 2016 | Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers | Chicago, IL
Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer

Minds and Morals

Perceiving an entity to have a mind deems that entity human, and thus worthy of moral care. Yet mind perception is highly variable, resulting in humanization of nonhumans and dehumanization of people, with opposing moral consequences. I will describe these processes to highlight the importance of recognizing minds in others.
