Abstract

Knobe considers two explanations for the influence of moral considerations on non-moral cognitive systems: the person as moralist position, and the person as [biased] scientist position. We suggest that this dichotomy conflates questions at computational and algorithmic levels, and suggest that distinguishing the issues at these levels reveals a third, viable option, which we call the rational scientist position.
