This question got me thinking:
It is widely held that Philosophy precedes the Sciences, birthing them. and continue to inform them. It is also evident that there are times when science has informed philosophy; advances in cosmology, the introduction of evolution theory, not to mention Physics, some scientific breakthroughs have had profound implications for metaphysics, often spawning new schools of thought and causing trouble for Ethics.
Cognitive science is the consummate example of a cross disciplinary project involving Philosophy. In it, unlike the "one informs the other" paradigm above, Philosophy is contributory within the research process. The focus of cognitive science is cognition, more specifically the "mechanics" of cognition. However it suggests to me that some philosophical questions may be fruitfully studied in this way.
Question: Are there any cross discipline work where Psychology is used for the advancement of philosophical insight?
