The Porto X-Phi Lab is a laboratory of experimental philosophy founded through the collaboration of a multidisciplinary team of researchers.
Experimental philosophy is the burgeoning field of philosophy that casts philosophical problems into questions about how humans think and feel, and utilizes experimental or quasi-experimental methods to probe such questions. Therefore, it also belongs to the domain of the cognitive sciences, including the neurosciences. Within this field, we shall develop a research program on agency and moral psychology, which involves studies on themes surrounding the concepts of action, intentional action, free action, moral wrongdoing and moral responsibility. Our program is starting with three lines of research.
