Along with the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, the Gruter Institute, and the MacArthur project on law and neuroscience, the Project on Law and Mind Sciences is hosting two-day conference entitled "Moral Biology?: What Can Biology and the Mind Sciences Teach Us about Law and Morality?"
The conference will examine what relevance developments in the mind sciences and evolutionary biology may have for moral and legal reasoning about responsibility, punishment, racism, cooperation, and addiction. The event features a public panel open to all (taking place on Thursday April 15 at 5:30 PM at Harvard Law School) as well as several closed-door sessions. I've attached the nearly final agenda.
There are a small number of spaces available for the closed portions of the conference. If you would like to attend the conference or any of those sessions, please let me know. I will do everything I can to make certain that you are added to the attendance list. However, to do that, I unfortunately need to hear from you before this Wednesday (04/07) at noon. Contact Jon Hanson for more information.
