Naïve effective altruism and the danger of neglecting psychology | Stefan Schubert

Stefan discusses the importance of considering our own and others’ emotions and psychological limits when practising effective altruism.

Stephan Schubert is a researcher at the Social Behaviour and Ethics Lab, University of Oxford, working in the intersection of moral psychology and philosophy. He focuses on psychological questions of relevance to effective altruism, such as why our altruistic actions are often ineffective, and why we don’t invest more in safe-guarding our common future. He was previously a researcher at the Centre for Effective Altruism, and a postdoc in philosophy at the London School of Economics.
