Mapping out modern morality
As our world rapidly evolves with social changes, new technologies, and other developments, how do we apply morality to emerging or unprecedented situations? Forward thinker and moral navigator Dr. Azim Shariff draws upon scientific data and moral psychology to explore topical questions we don’t yet have answers to. As religions recede, what will replace them? How will self-driving vehicles make ethical decisions about potential risks on the road? Explore these complex issues at this webinar that will delve into morality, modernity, cultural attitudes, and more.
