Brendan Dill de Kenessey Massachusetts Institute of Technology
I am a Ph. D student in philosophy at MIT. Before MIT, I studied Cognitive Science as an undergraduate at Yale. My research is about morality, psychology, and the intersection between the two. In moral philosophy, my project is to argue we can better understand a wide range of moral phenomena – blame, guilt, demands, promises, moral obligation, and moral reasons – by looking at the roles they play in interpersonal relationships. In psychology, my research focuses on interpreting empirical data about human motivation and action in order to derive lessons for philosophical questions about autonomy, freedom, belief, desire, intention, self-control, the will, and ‘the self.’ And at the intersection between these two fields, I am interested in merging empirical and philosophical approaches to understanding the psychology of morality, including moral judgment, moral motivation, and the moral emotions.
