*Perspectives on Empathy*

The Macquarie Research Centre for Agency Values and Ethics (CAVE) and the
Agency and Moral Cognition Network present the *Perspectives on Empathy*
Conference to be held at Macquarie University on November 4th and 5th 2015.
Empathy is of interest to researchers across a range of disciplines
including in philosophy of mind, cognitive science, psychiatry and
psychology, moral psychology, ethics and aesthetics. Yet there is no clear
agreement on what empathy is and the role it plays in moral development,
social and moral cognition, imagination, and motivation. This conference
seeks to bring researchers from across disciplines together to consider a
range of questions about the nature, function and importance of empathy.
