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 ofresearch.
With origins dating back to the eighteenth century, the University of Porto is the largest education and research institution in Portugal. Built along the hillsides overlooking the mouth of the Douro River,Porto is one of the oldest European centers and is registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Our aim is to develop a research program on agency and moral psychology. Currently, three lines of research are being pursued.
