Philosophy in practice: Problems at the intersection of social science and philosophy
Natalie is working on a number of projects at the intersection of philosophy and social science, including:
1. The implications of social identity theory for collective intentionality, including ‘continuity assumptions’ about the mechanisms for small-scale and large-scale collective activity
2. The use of thought experiments in ethics and the implications of cross-cultural differences in moral judgments
3. Why individuals should privilege long-term goals over short-term temptations and why policy-makers might be justified in helping them do that
4. The interaction of individuals and institutions: how institutions impact on behaviour and the implication of that for virtues and vices.
