A Blog Around The Clock

Eric Schwitzgebel, Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Riverside, and Fiery Cushman, a psychology post-doc at Harvard, are conducting an online experiment which involves comparing philosophers’ and non-philosophers’ responses to questions about moral dilemmas.

They got plenty of philosophers to do the experiments, but they need more non-philosophers for the comparison group. Their “Moral Sense Test” asks respondents for their takes on various moral dilemmas. They say that people who have taken other versions of this test have found it interesting to ponder the moral dilemmas they ask about. The test should take about 15-20 minutes and can be found at http://moral.wjh.harvard.edu/eric1/test/testN.html.

Please help them out by doing the experiment and telling others as well.
