Moral Psychology and Monogamy 11:30AM  -  12PM Moral Psychology and Monogamy 210 W 50th St, NYC

Moral Psychology and Monogamy

My talk will include an overview of research on monogamy (including studies on consensual non-monogamy), and will attempt to bridge this line of research with burgeoning theories in moral psychology. My aim is to help understand how and why people gravitate toward/away from monogamy based on a diverse array of moral concerns and other personality traits.

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify several frameworks in understanding the intersection between moral psychology and monogamy/non-monogamy.
  • Identify salient moral concerns that are relevant to understanding why people gravitate toward/away from monogamy.
  • Discuss ways in which understanding theirs and their partners’ moral concerns can help enhance their relationships, especially in the domain of sexuality.
