DETAILED PAPER DIRECTIONS: THE SCIENCE AND EVOLUTION OF MORALITY

You will watch three videos–one about morality in babies–and the other two about morality in animals. The big topic here is the evolutionary origin of our moral emotions. Where does morality come from?

The assignment is as follows. First, you will write a paragraph introducing the topic. Then you will write at least a page-and-a-half summarizing the baby video. Then you write at least a page-and-a-half summarizing the animal videos. Then you will write a paragraph sharing your own opinions about this research into the origins of morality.

In total, AT LEAST 4 PAGES. NO MORE THAN 5.
