+ - Thinking about science causes moral behaviour

Submitted by TheVelvetFlamebait
TheVelvetFlamebait (986083) writes "Can thinking about science causes moral behaviour? According to the Scientific American website,

Researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara set out to test this possibility. They hypothesized that there is a deep-seated perception of science as a moral pursuit — its emphasis on truth-seeking, impartiality and rationality privileges collective well-being above all else. Their new study ... argues that the association between science and morality is so ingrained that merely thinking about it can trigger more moral behavior.
