Psychology News Round-Up (March 9th)
By Dave Nussbaum
Happy belated round-up! Things have been busy with the #SPSP2015 conference in Long Beach, be sure to check out all our conference posts!
- Robb Willer wrote a NYT op-ed on whether the environment is a moral issue, and if not, why — here’s the closing:
To win over more of the public, environmentalists must look beyond the arguments that they themselves have found convincing. The next wave of moral arguments for environmental reform will need to look very different from the last, if they are to be maximally effective. Such efforts to understand others’ moral perspectives might not only bring both sides in line on this important issue, but also foster the sort of sincerity and respect necessary to sustain a large-scale collective effort.
- And a couple of fantastic post-doc opportunities at a couple of places I can personally vouch for, the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business (where I work) and Yale Psychology (where I did my undergrad):
