26th APS Annual Convention: Mark Your Calendar (San Francisco, CA, USA - May 22-25, 2014)

Cross-Cutting Theme Program

The Future of Violence

Friday, May 23, 2014, 10:30 AM - 11:05 AM
Continental Ballroom 1-3

Moral intuitions concerning violence are built on an aversion to agentic, interpersonal harm. However, rapid advances in our ability to cause harm using more efficient, impersonal methods (e.g., military action with autonomous machines) mean that our moral intuitions are increasingly ill-suited to deal with decisions regarding the morality of future (large-scale) violence.

This is part of the Psychology of Violence Theme Program.
