Experimental Philosophy

Experimental Philosophy is a new tool that philosophers use to answer traditional question and to develop new ones. They use experimental methods from psychology, neuroscience, and other disciplines to discover some facts about our answers to philosophical questions and our thinking. Questions in experimental philosophy include:

Are some of our judgments about thought experiments biased?
What - in general - affects our judgments about different philosophical cases?
What does experimental data say about philosophical problems?
