Human character has less of an influence on action than both philosophical theory and our everyday experiences would have us think, according to John M. Doris, the Peter L. Dyson Professor of Ethics in Organizations and Life and professor in the Sage School of Philosophy. A leading proponent of interdisciplinary approaches to moral psychology exploring questions of character, virtue, and agency since the 1990's, Doris has now collected over 20 years of his work into “Character Trouble: Undisciplined Essays on Moral Agency and Personality” (Oxford University Press, 2022). In a Chats in the Stacks book talk presented at Mann Library, Doris reflects on this collection, as well as discuss recent developments in understanding of moral cognition and behavior, and the moral psychology of character. John M. Doris is the Peter L. Dyson Professor of Ethics in Organizations and Life at Cornell University. Based in both the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management and the Sage School of Philosophy, he works at the intersection of cognitive science, moral psychology, and philosophical ethics.
