Neurobiology supports virtue theory on the role of heuristics in moral cognition

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):547-548 (2005)
Abstract
Sunstein is right that poorly informed heuristics can influence moral judgment. His case could be strengthened by tightening neurobiologically plausible working definitions regarding what a heuristic is, considering a background moral theory that has more strength in wide reflective equilibrium than “weak consequentialism,” and systematically examining what naturalized virtue theory has to say about the role of heuristics in moral reasoning.
