Moral Licensing

   2019    Medicine
Moral psychology isn't always an easy thing to study.

Often what we learn from moral psychology experiments doesn't make humans look good.
We are imperfect creatures. But the more we learn about why and how we make the moral choices that we do, the better we'll be able to tackle difficult questions in the future.
