DR OLIVER SCOTT CURRY

 Senior Researcher and Director of the Oxford Morals Project

at the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology,

        University of Oxford.

His research investigates the nature, content and structure of human morality, using a range of techniques from philosophy, experimental psychology and comparative anthropology.  Oliver’s work argues that morality is best understood as a collection of biological and cultural solutions to the problems of cooperation and conflict recurrent in human social life.  He has recently tested this theory of ‘morality as cooperation’ by means of a comprehensive cross-cultural survey of the moral values of 60 traditional societies.  He is currently developing a new psychological measure of moral values for use in cross-cultural research.
