Moral cognition and computational theory

In Walter Sinnott-Armstrong (ed.), Moral Psychology Volume 3. MIT Press (2008)
Abstract
In this comment on Joshua Greene's essay, The Secret Joke of Kant's Soul, I argue that a notable weakness of Greene's approach to moral psychology is its neglect of computational theory. A central problem moral cognition must solve is to recognize (i.e., compute representations of) the deontic status of human acts and omissions. How do people actually do this? What is the theory which explains their practice?
