Marko Jurjako

Assistant professor
Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Rijeka (Croatia)

His principal role is to address the interface problem. Specifically, he will investigate the possibilities of translating and integrating the scientific conceptions of psychological capacities underlying rationality with the normative concept of a person as individuated in the relevant legal and moral practices. Then, he will apply these considerations to the case of antisocial behaviour and psychopathy and investigate ethical implications.
