Psychologists Adam Waytz of Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Business and Jamil Zaki of Stanford have a fantastic blog hosted at Scientific American called The Moral Universe in which they discuss the psychology of right and wrong and issues surrounding it. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you definitely should.
 
Today, Adam breathes new life into a favorite classic article of his, Edward Titchener’s “The Feeling of Being Stared At,” published in 1898. He makes the case that it’s been under-appreciated as it helped lay the foundation for a lot of later work.
