“Does moral action depend on reasoning?”

From the original "Mighty Joe Young" (1949) - Joe rescues a child from a burning orphanage!

I think this is a fairly recent addition to the Templeton Foundation’s “Big Questions” essay series: “Does moral action depend on reasoning?”  I would like to have seen a cognitive ethologist on the panel of respondents, but the mix is nonetheless interesting.  Would love to see your reactions in the comments!
