Good attention: Attention norms and their role in practical reason, epistemology, and ethics

Project description

A normative evaluation of attention

What deserves attention and what should be ignored? What is good attention and what is bad attention? The EU-funded GOODATTENTION project conducts an interdisciplinary study of attention and the norms that guide it. It concerns normative questions about attention: about, for example, ethically correct or rational patterns of attention. It integrates research in psychology, neuroscience and linguistics with the philosophical fields of decision theory, epistemology, ethics, and political philosophy. GOODATTENTION investigates the cognitive and social mechanisms of norm-guided attention. And it integrates attention into normative philosophy. Contemporary societies face challenges about how to organise and share information, about mental health, collective action and new media landscapes. GOODATTENTION develops principles that can guide legal scholars and policymakers in this context.
