Episode Summary

EDIT
Biological Foundations of Morality: Implications for Ethics
AIRED:
Stephen Pope explains moral theology and how neuroscience can help the Church to better understand and respond to human behavior. He draws an analogy of the Magisterium, the teaching authority of the Catholic Church, to the interpreter of the brain, described by Michael Gazzaniga, in its role to gather information from Catholic parishes, schools and sources around the world to weave a narrative of moral teaching. But the diversity of Catholics and cultures and the need to suppress dissonance are challenges to the universality of Catholic teaching. Neuroscience, he says, offers insights that ought to make us more humble, self-critical and compassionate in Catholic moral teaching. The Church's teaching, in return, can be foundational to moral formation. This lecture is part of the conference "Biological Foundations of Morality? Neuroscience, Evolution & Morality", held at College of the Holy Cross in March of 2010.moreless
