For those interested in ethics and science, NewScientist has a fascinating new issue dealing with morality.

From what I've seen so far, they've assembled a pretty good team ranging from philosophers like Peter Singer to Neuroscientists like Patricia Churchland.

One of the more interesting articles came from Martha J. Farah. She argues that our understanding of cognition and self-control at the level of the brain will alter our notions about moral responsibility. As a result, these findings will eventually upend many aspects of our current justice system. NPR also did a story similar to this a few months ago, but I can't remember what it was called.
