New project at the Social Mind Center led by Christophe Heintz / Beliefs fostering dishonest behavior: Combining ethnographic and experimental evidence (BFD)

May 12, 2016

The project will investigate the factors that determine people's attitudes toward social rules or norms that are aimed at improving social welfare. Dishonesty can be characterized as failing to respect these rules, and adhering to them can be necessary for stable cooperation and resolving collective action problems. However, against this first operational characterization, ethnographic and experimental data suggest that depending on the context, people may break a rule and still think of themselves as honest.
