Moral philosophers tend to take the content of morality as given, perhaps by intuition or our cultural heritage, and attempt to derive moral truth from a sparse set of assumptions, such a utilitarianism (Bentham, Mill), virtue theory (Aristotle), or synthetic a priori deontological notions (Kant). Other philosophers attempt to derive valid moral rules themselves on the basis of a neo-Platonic foray into the juggling of abstract universals (Rawls, Nozick, Singer, Dworkin). The problem with traditional moral philosophy is that it has not recognized that morality is an evolved trait of our species, and had we evolved differently, we would have radically different morality.

In recent years, the social responsibilities of psychology and psychologists have become a source of considerable controversy. This book seeks to clarify the issues in dispute by analyzing the relationships between scientific facts and moral principles and the implications of these interactions for psychologists in a democratic society. The analysis brings to the surface underlying ethical, legal, and scientific problems that are too easily ignored. These problems are brought into sharp focus by analyzing the relationship between facts and values within an epistemological framework that is applicable to controversial social issues. The query "Can psychology advocate moral principles and prescribe public policy?" is discussed in great detail as applied tosuch emotion-laden controversies as intelligence testing, racial differences, affirmative action, multiculturalism, and moral pluralism. This book can serve as a stimulating text for undergraduate and graduate seminars. It is also an excellent resource for psychologists, sociologists, political scientists, psychiatrists, and philosophers.
