Is there a limit to the amount of moral progress that we, with our hominid brains, can make? Despite the persistence of conflict and suffering, it is hard to deny that humanity has made significant moral progress through the ages. However, what if this is just about the best we can be? Drawing on research in ethics and the sciences, this lecture will explore the limits of moral progress and how technological advances might help us to expand our ethical horizons.
