The new field of experimental philosophy has emerged as the methods of psychological science have been brought to bear on traditional philosophical issues. Oxford Studies in Experimental Philosophy is the place to go to see outstanding new work in the field. It features papers by philosophers, papers by psychologists, and papers co-authored by people in both disciplines. The series heralds the emergence of a truly interdisciplinary field in which people from different disciplines are working together to address a shared set of questions. This second volume in the series is divided into three sections that explore epistemology, moral and political philosophy, and metaphysics and mind.

Author Biography

Tania Lombrozo is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research combines methods and insights from philosophy and psychology to address questions about explanation and understanding, learning, causal reasoning, conceptual representation, and social cognition. She is also a regular blogger for NPR's 13.7: Cosmos & Culture.

Joshua Knobe is a professor at Yale University, appointed both in the Program in Cognitive Science and in the Department of Philosophy. Much of his research is concerned with the impact of moral judgments on people's intuitions about matters that might at first appear to be entirely non-moral in nature.

Shaun Nichols is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Arizona. His books include Sentimental Rules (2004), Bound (2014) and, co-authored with Stephen Stich, Mindreading (2003). His current research focuses on the psychological underpinnings of philosophical problems.
