In this episode of the podcast Hidden Brain, host Shankar Vedantam interviews psychologist Linda Skitka
about “how moral certainty can produce moral blinders — and perhaps endanger democracy.”
After listening to the episode, consider and reply to the following reading reflection question:
“What does Dr. Skitka mean by “moral conviction”? How does maintaining a “moral conviction” (as defined by
the psychological study discussed in the podcast) differ from engagement in ethical reasoning as you
understand it?”
