The Poster Presentation ]


We present a model of moral judgment, Charon, which adds to previous models several factors that have been shown to influence moral judgment: 1) a more sophisticated account of prior mental state, 2) imagination, 3) empathy, 4) the feedback process between emotion and reason, 5) selfinterest, and 6) self-control. We discuss previous classes of models and demonstrate Charonís extended explanatory power with a focus on psychopathy and autism.
