Natural and social sciences have long posed hard problems for familiar ways of thinking about ethics and morality. If our actions can be explained by causes beyond our will or awareness, does this mean we’re not responsible for them? What then becomes of our understanding of good lives and bad deeds? What place should cultural differences and historical change play in our understanding of ethics and morality? The book Ethical Life, aims to reconstruct an empirical approach to ethics in a dialogue between ethnography and its neighbors in history, psychology, and philosophy.
