We are an inter-disciplinary group of researchers investigating the self-over-time as a causal factor in decision-making. We are particularly interested in the parallels between people in groups, and the self as a team of agents over time. Based in the Department of Philosophy at King's College London, our research combines the approaches of philosophy, psychology, and economics to problems of self-control.
