Collective Moral Decisions

When faced with difficult moral choices, we tend to look for a solution together. We discuss moral choices within our families, with friends, in committees etc. For example, a family may discuss whether to discontinue life-support for their beloved patient, an ethics committee may dispute a research project that involves animal testing, and a political panel may argue over intervening in a foreign country to help its innocent civilians. Even when others are not directly involved in the decision process, often take the potential other’s point of view into account by discussing our individual moral opinions with them. When members of a family, committee or panel disagree about their moral principles, how do they collectively resolve their disagreements? This project tries to answer these questions by using different experimental paradigms and computational models.
