While behavioral economics and other social sciences have acknowledged that human motivations extend beyond narrow self-interest, the intricate landscape of the moral mind remains inadequately explored and understood. Varied in their moral inclinations, individuals differ not only in the extent to which they prioritize moral factors but also in determining their relevance across situations.

The Fairness and the Moral Mind workshop seeks to address these gaps by showcasing novel experimental endeavors undertaken by emerging scholars. These efforts converge to provide fresh insights into unraveling the complexities of the moral mind.
