The “Experimental Philosophy Group” brings together postgraduate students and members of staff who are interested in experimental philosophy, that is, in the application of experimental methods to philosophical inquiry. Its purpose is to provide an opportunity for its members to design and conduct their own experiments, assist each other in conducting this research, discuss each other's work and forge collaborative links. Currently, the group’s main interest is in folk intuitions on concepts that play a role in our philosophical theorizing: moral wrongness, blame, intention, consciousness, aesthetic value, etc.
