Brief CV

I am an assistant professor at the University of the Balearic Islands, specializing in moral psychology, and applied ethics. I earned my M.A. and Ph.D. in Human Evolution and Cognition from the same institution, where I was funded by an FPU pre-doctoral fellowship. Additionally, I earned an M.A. in Philosophy at Florida State University while working as a teaching assistant. After that, I received Margarita Salas and Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral fellowships to conduct research at the University of Granada. I have also undertaken research stays at the University of Antwerp, Yale University and Tilburg University.

My research interests lie in the field of moral psychology, with a particular focus on topics such as blame, empathy, moral motivation and self-deception. I am also interested in applied ethics, particularly in the areas of bioethics of mental health and the ethics of fame. I participate in a number of research projects exploring these topics, including 'From the Second-Person Perspective to the Moralization of Social Norms,' 'Meta-Attitudes, Deep Disagreements and Moral Progress,' and 'Moral Science and Institutional Design Laboratory.'

Some of my recent publications include:

  • Isern-Mas, C. (2023). Implementing conceptual engineering: lessons from social movements. Inquiry, 1-12.
  • Barone, P., Isern-Mas, C. & Pérez-Manrique, A. (2022). The Implications of the Second-Person Perspective for Personhood. An Application to the case of Human Infants and Non-human Primates. Teorema: Revista Internacional de Filosofía, 41(2), 133-150.
  • Isern-Mas, C., & Gomila, A. (2022). A second-personal approach to the evolution of moral motivation. Biological Theory. 17, 199-209.
