Human nature can be quite flawed
“I look forward to making new contributions to human welfare, education, and the role of scientific knowledge in understanding human nature.”
- Harvard University psychology professor Marc Hauser, who is the subject of a report just out that found that in six cases he engaged in research misconduct in work supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Professor Marc Hauser, who is currently posted to working with "at risk" youth, is also the author of the pop psychology book Moral minds: how nature designed our universal sense of right and wrong. It appears that a sense of right and wrong is not quite as universal as the professor has suggested.
